Mr. Kilbourne is running for seat 5 in the Caldwell City Council election.
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn”- Benjamin Franklin-
First of all, I am not a politician. I do not consider City Council a stepping stone for bigger and better things. I don’t have a wealth of political knowledge from which to dip my ladle and stand here and tell you, “here is where I stand and this is what I am going to do.” What I bring to the table is superb communication and mediation skills and a willingness to listen to both sides in order to make a rational judgment. I have no high profile friends which may cloud my judgment yet I, being a long time Caldwell resident, am sensitive to the growth needed to help Caldwell prosper. I have always been of the school that all government needs fresh ideas from one of the masses; the masses which I belong.
I am a 17 year resident of Caldwell Idaho and reside with my wife and son. My wife and I moved to Idaho in November 1994 where I picked up a job with a local agricultural company which I worked until the season ended in late January 1995. I found work with various companies until settling with a High Tech company in 2000. With the unfortunate turn in the economy I found myself laid off in 2009. I did not see my lay off as a bad situation; instead I saw it as a new opportunity. In June 2009 I seized this new opportunity and went back to get my degree in Business Administration. With degree in hand, I went back to work.
In my free time I enjoy Camping in beautiful Idaho, seeing sites around town, riding my motorcycle and Family time. I also help out as a Math and Writing tutor and am a member of Toastmasters.
