Copeland For Coeur d’Alene

An Introduction

My name is Amber Copeland and I would love the opportunity to represent Coeur d’Alene as a member of city council. In the last municipal election we saw a lot of focus being placed on specific issues such as McEuen field and the LCDC. While I acknowledge the importance of questioning a potential elected official’s stance on issues I feel that their individual ideology should also be explored since any person’s perspective is a key factor in their decision making processes.

Personally, I am a contingency based problem solver. I like to analyze an issue from every possible angle which is why I feel that any major decision in government should be a collaborative process to ensure that all aspects are acknowledged and addressed. I also feel that there should be term limits instilled in city government for this same reason. We need turnover in city hall to create and maintain balance in city decisions.

In addition, I believe strongly in the fact that the people casting the ballots deserve the respect and acknowledgement of the officials that they elect. Holding an office is a huge responsibility and one I feel that can not be done effectively without a personal and direct relationship with the public based on respect and communication. A quote I love by Thomas Jefferson states, “I consider the people who constitute a society or nation as the source of all authority in that nation.”

As a member of city council, I feel that it is vital to be a contributor. To me this means asking questions, offering ideas, being an active listener, and making thoughtful and informed decisions. It requires time, dedication, research and a personal investment in results.

I am a firm believer in transparent government. I feel that it starts with transparent elected officials which is why I am an open book. If you have any questions about me, my stances or anything at all please feel free to ask.

    Three questions please, what is your occupation, where do you stand on the anti discrimination ordinance that was passed and last when was the last City Council meeting or workshop you attended?

  3. Amber Copeland

    The last city council meeting that I attended was the meeting on June fourth regarding the anti-discrimination ordinance. Generally I watch the council meetings online. After listening carefully to all of the public’s comments, I support the council’s decision to pass this ordinance. To answer your other question, in my position I am direct care and supervision for at risk young adults between the ages of 18 and 25.

    Who is your treasure, how do you want donation made, do you have signs (if so I would like one) if not, you need them, your opponents are very well financed and will most likely have very expensive TV and Paper ad’s. Signs are a little less expensive and gets your name out there.

    I am my own treasurer and at this point I do not have any signs. I plan to have signs ready by the end of the month though and can provide you with one then. Donations can be mailed to the contact address listed on this website. I sincerely appreciate your support, it will be a fight to the finish in this race.
