for Sandpoint mayor




Kate McAlister is running for Sandpoint Mayor. Here's why!

Want to know why I’m running for Sandpoint Mayor?  It boils down to a number: 9,417

This is the approximate number of our current population. The 2020 census said we were at 8,639 and since 2020 we have had approximately 9 percent growth, now up to 9,417. We’re experiencing huge growth, and while that brings some benefits it also poses some serious challenges that I want to help our community meet.

I believe running for a non-partisan position is a privilege – a privilege in the sense of having the honor of representing all of the community members with equality.  We ARE a great community and I want to do everything I can to keep us great and it starts, and ends, being fair to all our citizens. I would appreciate your vote on November 7.
