Term: 1/18 – 12/21
“Community service is what separates citizens from people who just live here. When you get involved you help build a community for everyone to enjoy. Whether it’s volunteering at the food bank, coaching a little league team or sitting on the city council, it’s all important in making the place we live that much better. I’m proud and honored to be a part of building the future for Post Falls.”
Alan Wolfe was first elected to City Council in 2014. He also served on the Post Falls Planning & Zoning Commission from 2005 to 2013 serving as chairman the last five years of his term. Wolfe attended Central Washington University where he received a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and University of Phoenix for a Master of Business Administration. He also completed the prestigious Pacific Banking School at the University of Washington.
Alan worked in bank management for nearly 40 years. As a branch and district manager, he was responsible for leading a large team of people. Their primary goal was to help their patrons with their personal financial goals. In addition, he was responsible for creating and following an annual budget which gave him the experience necessary to help the city be fiscally responsible to the taxpayers. He retired from banking in 2016 and started a consulting company with his wife. They focus on helping small businesses and non-profits find success.
Outside of work, Alan could always be found helping out in the community. He coached youth sports for many years and volunteered consistently throughout his 35 years in North Idaho. He held leadership positions with the Inland Empire Girl Scouts, Post Falls Chamber of Commerce, Post Falls Community Volunteers, Toastmasters and Kiwanis International. He has also been a regular volunteer for NISSA, Mayor’s Youth Awards and Ironman CDA, where he also competed in 2012, 2015 and 2016. In 2013, Alan was honored to be named Post Falls Citizen of the Year.
He and his wife Dani Zibell-Wolfe live in Post Falls. They have five grown children and six grandchildren. Together, they enjoy hiking, golf and traveling.
