LFP GOV WATCH endorses Kiest and Wright for City Council election

Sunday, June 23, 2013

The LFP GOV WATCH organization has endorsed incumbent Lake Forest Park City Councilman John Wright and former Councilman Alan Kiest for Council positions on the Nov. 5 general-election ballot.

Wright is running unopposed for re-election. Kiest is running against John Resha for the position that Councilman Bob Lee now holds.

The organization has yet to endorse candidates for either of the other two positions on the ballot but said in a recent press release that it expects to continue to interview candidates through the end of June.

Hilda Thompson is running against Jason Colberg for the position that Councilwoman Sandy Koppenol now holds. Candidate Mark Phillips is running against Edgar Escanda for the position that Councilman Don Fiene holds.

The organization was instrumental in the overwhelming defeat of a proposed City levy-lid lift three years ago and the election of Mayor Mary Jane Goss two years ago. 

LFP GOV WATCH describes itself as a “non-partisan civic organization.”

The organization said that the two endorsed candidates share its commitment to “ensuring that the City of Lake Forest Park remains livable, affordable, and sustainable by encouraging, supporting, and promoting a responsible and effective City government.”
