    Vote out all Post Falls incumbents. Your city bill has increased over 320% since 1996, from $16 to $52 per month with no change in service. The only thing funded are $100,000 per year supervisors, expensive line workers with benefits to choke a horse and new plush office buildings for people who are under delusion they are worth more than 10 cents a week. These people do not serve the people of Post Falls and an idiot could do a better job of rubber-stamping. Send all incumbents packing and we will exit the rest of them on the next go-round.

    "Interesting" how the Post Falls incumbents biggest contributors are people who have richly benefited from past votes... Charles Lempesis' development (at Spokane St. & Poleline), and Schneidmiller. Clearly, there doesn't appear to be much concern that these incumbents are in jeopardy of losing their council seats, otherwise, the contributions would have been greater. Vote these incumbents out!
