NWPOA releases candidate evaluations

Print Article

COEUR d'ALENE - The Northwest Property Owners Association has evaluated candidates for the upcoming May 20 primary elections, and released the results on Thursday.

According to a press release, candidate evaluations were done using the criteria set forth in the NWPOA Mission Statement. The NWPOA Board and Election Committee collectively spent hundreds of hours researching and examining candidates.

Some candidates participated by completing a one-hour NWPOA candidate survey and submitting a one-page bio and resume to aid the rating effort. In addition, it reviewed candidate websites, news articles, member input, candidate interviews, public forums, and voting records, all of which were taken into account, the release stated.

"NWPOA was formed in an effort to combat the trampling of our property and privacy rights by elected officials," the release said. "From our inception, we understood that it was critical for NWPOA to involve itself in the election process."

NWPOA said it quizzed each candidate on a list of its top concerns, and results are ratings for each (they are not endorsements).

The NWPOA Board of Directors includes Jennifer Locke, Gary Mitchell, Carla Woempner, Jeff Tyler, and Kristi Cochrane.

The top-rated candidate in each of the races is listed below:
