Gary Herfurth

A candidate for Council seat No. 6, City of Coeur d'Alene in the 2013 Nov. 5 Idaho General Election


City: Coeur'Alene, Idaho

On this race:

Gary Herfurth, a retired California teacher, was president of the teachers' associations in Barstow and Orchard, Calif., and made an unsuccessful bid for the Barstow City Council. He said he wants to involve residents in city government as much as possible, including the use of polls, surveys and email. Herfurth said he would push for an "efficiency commission to investigate the possibility of tax reduction." He believes the city's relationship with local businesses must be improved. "Bureaucratic hurdles need to be cut," he said. "Less taxes could enable and provide local business more capital to expand and grow, providing more job growth for the area."
