Spotlight: Ron Edinger

This is the final of SReporter Scott Maben's five capsule looks at Coeur d'Alene City Council candidates. Below, you can find a link to the rest of the candidate capsules already posted on Huckleberries:

POSITION: SEAT 1

 

Ron Edinger

Age: 79

His words: “I have the experience, dedication and honesty to serve another 4-year term. I still have the desire to serve. I want to see Coeur d’Alene progress and move forward. … I think I’ve done a good job for the citizens of Coeur d’Alene.”

His pitch: A top goal is to make sure the city builds a fourth fire station, at Atlas and Ramsey streets, and hires more firefighters and police officers, he said. Edinger opposed how much the city spent to rebuild McEuen Park but thinks the project turned out “pretty good.” He said the new Four Corners revitalization project “will be a benefit to the whole community.”

Notable experience: Edinger has served 41 years on the City Council and also was mayor 1974-78. He’s on the city’s General Services Committee, the Tubbs Hill Foundation, the city Parks Foundation, the Parks & Recreation Commission and the Sick Leave Bank.
