Downtown Association: No To Recall

The Board of the Coeur d’Alene Downtown Association unanimously declares its support for Mayor Sandi Bloem, and Council Members Woody McEvers, Deanna Goodlander, and Mike Kennedy.  These four individuals have worked tirelessly on a number of great projects for the citizens of Coeur d’Alene including the Kroc Center, Centennial Trail, Coeur d’Alene Library and Midtown revitalization. Whether you support the McEuen Redesign or not is irrelevant.  There is an attack being waged against our Representative Democracy by those that would have the citizens of Coeur d’Alene sign a petition to remove the Mayor and half the City Council simply because they don’t share the same opinion. This is a dangerous precedent. Full letter to the editor here.

  • Here's a list of officers & staff that reads 2011Downtown Board of Directors, but it was posted on the association's Web site for 2012. So I'd guess the list is current. Click here.

Question: Does anyone know whether the Coeur d'Alene Chamber of Commerce is going to take a stand on this issue?
