DELAVAN: Let him lead county
April 15, 2020
Change can be good, especially in challenging times like these. Fortunately, there’s a candidate running who will make a change for the best with the District Two Commissioner seat.
Some of the current issues which should be important to all Kootenai County residents fit right into Greg Delavan’s background and expertise, whom I’ve known for more than 20 years.
Both a lifetime local resident and real estate professional, Greg understands the need to keep our property taxes from spiraling to a level which many can no longer afford their homes. I think he also realizes the desire of most residents to keep our piece of paradise from becoming just another over-developed, over-priced, urban-sprawled community.
Marina owner and president of the Coeur d’Alene Lakeshore Property Owners Association, Greg is passionate about protecting our beautiful waterways.
A private pilot and former director of the Coeur d’Alene Airport, Greg certainly understands the airport is both a financial and important transportation hub to the county, and that future development needs to proceed carefully while working with taxpayers, pilots and businesses.
A student of health care administration and financial administration, Greg has a handle on current issues like the Health Corridor project, and longtime issues like getting the best bang from our tax dollars.
A longtime friend of this retired law enforcement officer, I know Greg understands the need for a well-staffed and well-run Sheriff’s Department.
In my opinion, Greg Delavan’s political positions reflect what will best serve taxpayers, and I know he will listen to his constituents’ input and represent them well. Please consider Greg as your choice for Kootenai County Commissioner and vote in the May primary.
DELAVAN: Dedicated to the job
April 14, 2020
I’ve been on the Coeur d’Alene Lakefront Homeowners Board for about five years. I’m always amazed by the hard work that Greg Delavan puts in for all of the Coeur d’Alene residents who enjoy the lake, as well as the area we live in. I’m very proud to know him and I can vouch firsthand for this positive man of integrity and patience like very few men really possess.
A vote for Greg is a vote for dedicated public servant, not a politician. His roots reside in Kootenai County as a member of a family who has owned property here for multiple generations.
Greg has seen the growth and changes here over the years and can offer a solid, fact based view of what is happening in our community and common sense ways to find mutual agreements to address the important issues of his district.
