Kootenai County Commissioner Marc Eberlein's priorities are:
- Accountability, transparency, fairness, and fiscal restraint in County government

It is a great honor; it is not a responsibility to be taken lightly as one day I will stand before my Maker to answer for my actions". Marc encourages folks to participate in the process of government, to be ever vigilant, and to remember in prayer those who serve.
