Kristi is a retired teacher from the Coeur d’Alene school district. She is enjoying her free time hanging out with her grandchild, traveling and being active in local community groups such as the North Idaho Education Retired Chapter, the Kootenai Environmental Alliance and the Kootenai County Democrats.
Kristi has lived in Coeur d’Alene for the last 21 years. She has 2 sons and 4 grandchildren who live in Hayden and a daughter currently teaching in Brisbane, Australia. In 2016, she ran for State Senate in District 4. Although she lost, the experience of knocking on doors and talking to thousands of her Coeur d’Alene neighbors has made her even more committed to serving the community.
Brian's topic should make for interesting conversation. He is curious about the effect his talk will have on those choosing a hamburger for dinner.

"I'm excited about the progress that the legislature made on transportation funding and the continued commitment to education this session," Said Malek.
