English to run for Cd'A City Council

Print Article

COEUR d'ALENE - Dan English announced Friday that he intends to run for a seat on the Coeur d'Alene City Council.

"I have a well-documented lifetime of interest in and service to the city where I was born," English said in a press release. "I look forward to continuing to serve this city and community."

With 20 years of previous public service experience, including time as the Kootenai County clerk and a member of the Coeur d'Alene School Board, English told The Press that he enjoys having firsthand engagement in local politics and working directly with people both in the community and government.

"I've been itching to be in an election again," English said.

On June 1, English will take over as executive director of Habitat for Humanity, after serving as the director for North Idaho CASA. He has a master's degree in counseling psychology from Gonzaga University, and a bachelor's degree in criminal justice administration from San Jose State University.

English also describes himself as a proud graduate of Coeur d'Alene High School and North Idaho College.

"My approach (if elected) would be to consider each issue on its merits and value to this community and not to judge from a pre-set ideology," English said in the release. "I'm not embarrassed to clearly say I still believe that 'compromise' is not a four-letter word, especially in the world of politics."

English will run for the fifth seat on the council, which is held by Steve Adams. Adams has not announced if he will seek a second term.
