Former Kootenai County Clerk Dan English is planning to run for election to one of the state legislative seats in the newly formed District 2.
He has not yet announced which position he will seek.
"One of my primary motivations in running is to give people of District 2, formerly District 3, a choice on the November ballot no matter who else might be on the ballot," English wrote, in a message sent to The Press.
"In doing some research into past elections in this district, I found that the voters have not had an actual choice on the ballot for a full decade when JoAnn Harvey ran against Kent Bailey for Senate in 2002. I feel our elected representatives should represent all of the voters not just one party or viewpoint exclusively."
