In her latest newsletter, Mary Souza of OpenCDA.com tells of hobnobbing with new Kootenai County Commissioner Dan Green (pictured, left) to discuss "public employees and much more."

They combed through the budget and sliced out $800,000, but were saddened to discovered the state-mandated indigent care had been estimated at only half its real cost by the previous administration, so the new budget savings were obliterated this legal obligation officially called County Assistance. But they’re trying." Green, Commissioner Jai Nelson (pictured, right), and new County Clerk Cliff Hayes give constituents "a much needed sense of hope." You can read the rest of Mary's column here.
