Woody McEvers has called North Idaho home since 1978, after leaving the beaches and desert of Southern California. He and his brother Daren purchased the popular downtown Coeur d’Alene restaurant Rustler’s Roost in 1981.
Woody's city experience started with the Traffic Safety Commission in September, 1995, where he served for two years. He was then appointed to the Planning Commission in May, 1997 and served for five years.
Elected to the City Council in 2002, Woody believes government should be responsible to its citizens through honesty, integrity, and fiscal responsibility. Woody serves as Chairman of the Public Works Committee, and was instrumental in the creation of Coeur d'Alene's government cable TV station, CDA-TV, which he hopes will continue to grow. He is also Chairman of the Board of the Kootenai County EMS System and has served on the board since 2004.
During Woody's years of service, many important projects have been completed, including the Riverstone Development, KROC Center, the new public library, expansion of the Wastewater Treatment Facility, the McEuen Park revitalization, and creation of the city's newest water well.
Woody believes that the City Council and the Mayor strive to do what is best for Coeur d'Alene citizens today and in the future. One person CAN make a difference. He encourages Coeur d'Alene's citizens to consider getting involved in our great city.
