DELAVAN: A proven leader

| May 19, 2020 1:00 AM

I first met Greg within days of moving here over 20 years ago. I had recently retired, after living several years in England, spent some time looking for the right place to settle, was encouraged by friends and family to look at Coeur d’Alene, and it was love at first sight. I grew up in a small town in Wyoming, so it had to be somewhere in the West.

I am a general aviation pilot (corporate/charter), and owned a plane, so a good airport was a must. This airport was that, and then some. I served on the Airport Advisory Board for ten years, while Greg was the Airport Director, and found him, and the entire airport team to be outstanding. I was impressed with the Airport Master Plan, and the continuing improvements, plus adding revenue and creating jobs across the airport complex.

Greg’s experience with the airport, and his knowledge of how the county functions, along with his business experience in managing his marina, and his knowledge of and love for this area make him an outstanding candidate for County Commissioner. He is an excellent leader and manager, with integrity and character, and will serve us well.

Please cast your ballot for Greg Delavan.
