Dian Courtright, founder of Concerned Citizens of Coquille, a human rights advocacy group borne out of public frustration with the local police department last summer has thrown her hat into the ring for city councilor. Four positions are up for renewal, Corky Daniels, Kathy Hagen, Fran Capehart and the mayor’s position held by Steve Britton. All incumbents have signed up to “re-up”. To date, the only challengers are John Spencer and Dian.

Time is running short, August 26 is the deadline to have your application in and a petition with a minimum of twenty qualified signatures in order to be on the ballot.

Many people have encouraged Dian to run and I am especially proud of her for stepping up to do her civic duty. She hopes to bring diversity, accessability and accountability to city governance. Yeah, Dian!!!!
