The Democratic Club welcomes local businessman John Grimm. A Kootenai County resident for 15 years, he announced his candidacy for Kootenai County Sheriff. He will run as a Republican in the May 2020 primary. Mr. Grimm owns AMI Machining in Hayden. His company manufactures small components for the medical, aerospace, automotive and defense industries.
Mr. Grimm brings a business background to the sheriff’s office. He believes the sheriff’s position requires more than just law enforcement experience; the sheriff is the chief administrator of the department. He states that his experience as a reserve deputy, decades of business and administrative skills, effective leadership and sound financial management history along with volunteering in the community give him the experience needed to effectively run the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department. Additionally, his pilot training has given him the ability to be calm under pressure and in dangerous or difficult situations.
We welcome sheriff candidate John Grimm to the Democratic Club noon, Friday, August 30, at the Iron Horse Restaurant in Coeur d’Alene. This is not merely a political discussion but chance to meet another candidate. Being informed will bring us better and more professional government. Bring a friend and the friend does not have to be a fellow Democrat. A good time, good food and good information. Be Informed. Join us.
