I am overwhelmed with the amount of support I received this General Election cycle.

My supporters worked tirelessly and I appreciate each and every one of you! We had some up hill battles but they were handled with dignity and respect.

It will be my honor to serve as your commissioner this term. My family and I can live anywhere and we choose to live here, among the finest people in the county, country, and world! My heartfelt gratitude isn’t enough to repay the hours, dollars, and talent put into my campaign.

You know who you are and YOU are the best!

To the best of the best: my family. The three of you are my world and we are doing this together to serve God and our county. I will need you now more than ever. Thank you for your love and enthusiastic support.


It’s essential that we vote our values, so I’ll be voting for Leslie Duncan for Kootenai County Commissioner. Leslie understands that tax dollars come from the taxpayers and should be budgeted responsibly and county commissioners must avoid raising taxes whenever possible. She’ll make sure our land use laws are fair and protect the rights of property owners while following the U.S. and Idaho Constitutions. She’ll weigh the options, consider possible outcomes and develop the right position.

She has devoted many hours and effort working and volunteering in our community in various positions. Leslie’s experience as a small business owner, volunteer on the Women’s Auxiliary Board for the Union Gospel Mission’s Center for Women and Children and Chairperson of the Aquifer Protection Board, means she understands how our community and local government works and doesn’t work.

I find Leslie Duncan to be honorable, trustworthy and have the skills we need for county commissioner. She respects and values elected officials, county employees and individuals, it shows. She’s approachable, engaged, and genuinely committed to governing well.

Please join me in voting for Leslie Duncan for Kootenai County Commissioner on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

What does a County Commissioner Do?

A Commissioner is one third the governing body of Kootenai County. The three elected Commissioners, “the Board”, serves as the taxing authority, the contracting body and the chief administrators of public funds.  They can enact laws, ensure compliance of laws, and secure services for the county.
It is crucial we elect Commissioners that have the best interest of the county’s citizens as their primary concern. It truly is a job of public service and should be approached that way.
As noted on the County website: The County Commissioners (BOCC, Board or simply Commissioners) is the governing body of Kootenai County. Consisting of three elected officials, the Board serves as the taxing authority, the contracting body and the chief administrators of public funds. Among other duties, the Board enacts laws, ensure compliance of laws and secures professional services for the county.
