Lawmakers return donations from Priest Lake land lessees

Top Idaho lawmakers have returned scores of campaign contributions that appeared to be linked to action on state-owned cabin lots at Priest and Payette lakes.

Grafos’ campaign chest largest so far

The candidates for Spokane Valley City Council seats are settling into two camps – those who are supported by the council’s Positive Change members and campaign donors, and those who are not. Whether elected or appointed, the council incumbents have amassed the most cash and the incumbents share several major campaign donors. Councilman Chuck Hafner, who was appointed to his council seat this year, quickly raised $5,350 but hasn’t collected any donations since the filing week in June showed that he is running unopposed. His top contributors include real estate agent Gordon Curry ($500) and former Senator Bob McCaslin, who donated $500 before he died earlier this year.
