Over the past two weeks, a number of local elected officials have stepped forward and voluntarily disclosed their financial information so citizens can see where potential conflicts of interest might someday exist. These civic-minded electeds are doing on a volunteer basis what an Idaho House committee failed to make a requirement. The Press asked all elected members of city, county and state government from Kootenai County to share very basic information with the public, and the following individuals have, including Post Falls urban renewal agency members who are appointed but oversee large sums of money:

• REP. PAUL AMADOR, R-Coeur d’Alene

• STEVE WIDMYER, Mayor, City of Coeur d’Alene

• STEVE GRIFFITTS, Mayor, City of Hayden

• RON JACOBSON, Mayor, City of Post Falls

• VIC HOLMES, Mayor, City of Rathdrum

• COLLIN COLES, Commissioner, Post Falls Urban Renewal Agency

• BRAD MURRAY, Trustee, North Idaho College

• WARREN C. KEENE, M.D., Kootenai County Coroner

• STEVE ANTHONY, Member, Post Falls City Council

• MIKE McDOWELL, Kootenai County Assessor

• GRAHAM CHRISTENSEN, Chair, Eastside Highway District board

• DAVID EUBANKS, Trustee, Coeur d’Alene School Board

• RICHARD HOUSER, Commissioner, Post Falls Urban Renewal Agency

• KIKI MILLER, Member, Coeur d’Alene City Council

• KATIE BRODIE, Trustee, Kootenai Health Board of Directors

• BARRY McHUGH, Kootenai County Prosecuting Attorney
