Paulos: DOTC Is Prototype Idaho Demo Candidate

Dan English is proving once again why the Democrat Party has a member of that party sitting in the office of Kootenai County Clerk, the lone Democrat who holds an elected county position. I believe it is true that Kootenai County is the most Republican county in the most Republican state in the Union. It’s the simple truth that Dan does an outstanding, sometimes inventive job. One of the most difficult jobs a county clerk has is satisfying the needs of the news media on a county election night. I can’t recall a time when I have heard a serious complaint from the media about county election returns that could be traced to inefficiency or indifference on Dan’s part. The entire efficiency of the office is directly traceable to Dan and the competent staff he has assembled.

Occasionally, old Bob Paulos/Coeur d’Alene Press gets it right. For the rest of his Dan of the County comment, click here.
