With the soon-to-be-closed Third Street boat launch and the McEuen Park construction in the background, community leader Mary Souza announced her intention to file as a candidate for Mayor in the November 2013 Coeur d’Alene city election.

Souza was introduced to a crowd of approximately 60 people by Coeur d’Alene City Councilman Dan Gookin.

Speaking both extemporaneously and from prepared remarks, Souza pledged to conduct respectful and professional meetings and to listen to the citizens.  She also promised that citizens would have a vote on major issues that concern them.

Near the end of the event, Councilman Dan Gookin wryly observed that in the half-hour or so since people had started to arrive,  three boats had been launched at the  “underutilized” Third Street ramps.

  1. What is the over used catch phrase nowadays…oh yeah…’that is a game changer’. At the moment based upon their face pictures on this site, I would say, based solely upon my close comparison of Mary’s and Jim’s respective smiles, that the race is dead even. I am looking forward to seeing how this progresses…from my out of the city limits view.

  3. Mary, you have my vote. You have worked hard and I look forward to watching you on Channel 19. There is not a doubt in my mind you will put the people first instead of manipulating the agenda to hear them last. It’s about time we saw some balance and it’s in you.

  4. Thank you! Now that I’m a candidate for Mayor, I won’t be commenting here or on any other blogs. Bill is on his own now and I know he will continue to post his valuable and detailed information.

    I have one request before I politely exit this forum, if someone makes an accusation, against me or any other person, please back it up with at least one example. And if a commenter does not offer one, I’d ask that the rest of you demand it. Thank you. It’s going to be a busy summer!

    I will, however, continue to send our my newsletters, so if you have not signed up or have a friend who would like to receive it, please go to
