Bingham – Conservative for Kootenai District 3
Bob Bingham, local advocate for property owners and founder of North West Property Owners Alliance, announces his intention to seek the office currently held by fellow Republican Dan Green.
Launched into community service when a concerned neighbor called him in 2012 about the proposed ULUC Code, Bingham united citizens together by founding NWPOA.ORG. Under a common banner, a broad coalition of citizens from all walks of life and from several political persuasions catalyzed together with the common goals of protecting property and privacy rights.
“It has been very humbling to me that over the last 3-4 years people from communities all around Kootenai and Bonner counties have invited me to speak on topics related to property and privacy rights and to represent their collective interests before elected officials. If elected, I pledge to continue working with and representing the interests of citizens.”
Bob is dedicated to the spirit of our U.S. Constitution, the application of conservative principles, a desire for a nimble and transparent government that is accountable to, and properly serves, its citizens.
Bingham spent two decades working in the power industry, serving as plant manager of a 600 mega-watt, $300 million power generation facility, personally responsible for staff and annual budget of $33 million dollars. He spent another decade working as a commercial and residential general contractor. Bingham also obtained his credentials as a certified code inspector in the 1980s.
If elected, he plans to work with staff, other agencies, and elected officials to make our county government vastly more transparent. Applying research-based data and seeking consensus to solve several long range facility planning needs such as the need for our county jail expansion. Bingham plans to explore new ways to stimulate economic growth (business) and believes this is an underutilized tool in meeting the needs of county services without burdening property owners with higher taxes.
“I can’t say enough about Bob Bingham’s tireless work and thoughtful research over the last several years. Bob played an instrumental role in helping to stop the proposed Unified Land Use Code. He has a proven track record of citizen representation.”Jennifer Locke – Republican Precinct Committeeman
