Democrats eager to disclose

Kootenai County Democrats seeking office in this year’s legislative elections are stepping forward to disclose their finances.

The Press is currently publishing financial disclosures of all current office holders willing to share that information with voters. When that’s complete, the newspaper will publish financial disclosures of any candidates in Kootenai County who are seeking but don’t currently hold a city, county or state elected office.

Local Democrats running for Legislature who have already submitted their financial disclosures include:

• Dan Hanks, seeking District 3 House Seat B;

• Cory English, seeking the District 4 Senate seat;

• Shem Hanks, running for District 4 House Seat B;

• Rebecca Schroeder, seeking District 4 House Seat A.

The following political office holders are doing their part to promote transparency despite an Idaho House committee’s refusal to require elected officials to publicly list their financial interests. Idaho and Michigan are the only states that do not require this minimal disclosure.

The Press will continue to publish voluntary financial disclosures from elected officials as they’re submitted. The disclosures are meant to alert citizens to potential areas where conflicts of interest could arise. All elected holders of city, county and state offices from Kootenai County are encouraged to follow the format below, emailing their information to Editor Mike Patrick: mpatrick@cdapress.com
