Our response to COVID-19

The Kootenai Democrats have suspended all public gatherings and events in accordance with Center for Disease Control social distancing recommendations. Cancellations include all KCDCC meetings, Executive Committee meetings, the Democratic Club and other scheduled events. This decision takes effect immediately and will remain in effect until further notice. We sincerely hope that you remain safe until this global crisis is averted. For specifics about how campaign related events and election issues will be managed, please read the following letter from our Interim Chair Laura Tenneson.

IDP 2020 COVID-19 FAQ

As a result of social distancing, we need your help to get our message out.

The Kootenai Democrats strive to bring equality and economic justice to all Idahoans but especially those in Kootenai County. However, due to social distancing restrictions, we can’t use traditional door knocking to reach our voters. Therefore, we must adjust our communications strategy to focus on the use of print and digital advertising along with social media. However, this takes money.

That is why we are reaching out to you. Imagine if just 10 people commit to $20 per month for 12 months. With this level of commitment, we could raise $2,400. Imagine if 100 people did it. Truthfully many of us easily save $20 a month by not being able to eat out in restaurants. So, if you can help, it would be greatly appreciated. CLICK HERE to set up your recurring contribution.
