Thank you for your support! I look forward to another, successful 4-year term.

I’ve been encouraged by a diverse group of citizens to seek another term on the Coeur d’Alene City Council. I'm called the voice of reason, the one who asks the logical questions.

My record is that I promote retaining the charm and character of our City. I’ve opposed placing high density development in established neighborhoods. I’ve never voted for a property tax increase. I demand transparency. It’s important for me to ensure that the public knows what their government is doing and how it spends their money.

Above all, I’m most proud to represent those who feel they don’t have a voice in city government, those who have been shut out of the system or ignored by the power players.

This is my record, which is why I ask you to vote Dan Gookin, Seat 3, Coeur d’Alene City Council.
