Duncan Runs for Kootenai Commissioner District 3


Rathdrum resident, Leslie Duncan, has announced her candidacy for Kootenai County Commissioner, District 3.

“I want to see better and more efficient county government that respects the people in our community and is committed to working for, and protecting the rights of all our citizens”, Dunc an stated.

Community service plays a major role in Duncan’s life. She currently serves as the Chair of the Kootenai County Aquifer Protection District Committee, on the Board of the Women’s Auxiliary for Union Gospel Mission’s Center for Women and Children in Coeur d’Alene, and a s a Board Member and Vice President of Ohio Match Rd. Water District in Rathdrum.

The wife and mother of two explained, “Giving back to the community has been a priority for me. During my early years in law enforcement, I saw firsthand how failure to get involved had a negative impact on society from the individual and family level all the way up to how we do government. Now that my children are older I can do even more.

My experience as a busines s woman and former law enforcement officer will provide a perspective not currently represented on the Board of County Commissioners.”

Duncan is former President and currently Secretary/Treasurer of Falcon Enterprises, Inc., a remote television production company. She has a degree in Criminal Justice from California State University, Fullerton, California.

I support Leslie Duncan for Kootenai County Commissioner, District 3.

Leslie would make an excellent county commissioner. I have known her for over six years and observed very admirable qualities. She has the perfect balance of past experience, present involvement and a desire to serve.

In 2015, Kootenai County had 212 homeless women and 121 homeless children under the age of 18. Leslie has a heart to end homelessness and compassionately serves on UGM’s board, championing the needs of the women and children to local churches, organizations and groups. Her service on the nominating committee has contributed to interviewing and electing four members to the board.

It has been a pleasure having Leslie serve on the board. Through her experience and service on the Women’s Auxiliary Board for UGM Women and Children Center, Coeur d’Alene, Leslie Duncan has proven that she is hardworking and ethical to be the next county commissioner of Kootenai County.

James and Nancy Doty fully and completely endorse Leslie Duncan for Kootenai County Commissioner.

She has the education, background, commitment, integrity, and ability to make a needed difference as a Kootenai County Commissioner. Leslie is honest, politically unencumbered, and will represent the residents of Kootenai County in a very transparent way. We need representation that will serve “All” the people and Leslie is that candidate. We highly recommend that we, as residents, get behind her candidacy and cast a vote that truly counts.

I have had the good fortune to work with Leslie Duncan for over two years on the Kootenai County Aquifer Protection District Policy and Budget Committee.

We work with the County Commissioners, multiple state agencies, and local jurisdictions to maintain and enhance the protection of the Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer, an economic lifeblood of our region.

Leslie’s firm grasp on the issues related to budgets, regulations, and water quality as well as her even-handed approach to solving problems are a great asset as our Committee Chair.

Leslie has shown me that she would quickly apply those skills and be a great asset to Kootenai County as a Commissioner.
