About Bob Scott
Candidate for Kootenai County Assessor


Elect bob Scott Kootenai County AssessorA Bit About Me

I have lived in the Inland Northwest for over 32 years and have resided in Kootenai County for 27 of those years. I share a home in Post Falls with my partner of 7 years, Mary Bidwell. In my leisure time, I enjoy building and flying radio-controlled model airplanes, 3-D printing and working on our home and yard.

I’ve been blessed with two beautiful children. Lily, 21, is about to graduate from college in Arizona and Ryan, 18, lives in Coeur d’Alene.

My working career began at the age of 14. I’ve owned two small businesses and was self-employed for 16 years. Eight of those years were running a small auto parts store and garage and working as a manufacturer’s representative selling and servicing high technology equipment to companies like Intel and Hewlett Packard.

As a top-producing Realtor for Coldwell Banker Schneidmiller, I worked in both Idaho and Washington for 8 years.

In 2013, I went to work for the Kootenai County Assessor’s Office as a Residential Appraiser. In my 9 years with the office, I have progressed through the various appraisal positions and recently was promoted to Lead Appraiser for the Post Falls/Hauser area.

As an Idaho Certified Ad Valorem Appraiser, I have assessed thousands of properties in Kootenai County which has led me to build many relationships and the trust of the taxpayers I encounter out in the field. I hear their concerns and with my extensive background, I am able to explain how the appraisal process works.

With my Real Estate, Appraisal, and business experience, I am confident that I am well qualified to perform the role of Assessor.

I have received the endorsement of Mike McDowell, our past Kootenai County Assessor as well as the endorsement of Joe Johns, past Chief Deputy Assessor. This speaks volumes about the environment in the Assessor’s Office right now. These men know the job and believe I’m the right person to get it done.

I look forward to engaging with other Assessors, while working hard for the betterment and common good of our counties.
