  • Incumbent Coeur d'Alene City Councilman Steve Adams wants to increase accountability for the city's urban renewal agency. If re-elected, he also plans to work to reduce the city's labor costs and cut taxes for city residents. Adams, who is facing two challengers in the Nov. 3 election, has been on the city council for four years. "I understand the proper role of municipal government and that it must be transparent and free of corruption and cronyism," he said/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

  • Bruce MacNeil has more than 50 years of management experience in both the public and private sectors. MacNeil, a 72-year-old retiree, is challenging incumbent Coeur d'Alene City Councilman Steve Adams. Dan English is also challenging. "I understand what it means to have to make a profit to justify my existence," MacNeil said. "I also understand what it means to spend public funds wisely to deliver quality services to the people who pay the taxes."
