Sue: As an aside, the Jerry Lees (his wife is named Jeri also) are former neighbors of mine. Really good honest people who have raised 2 wonderful children. Anyone would be fortunate to have someone like Jerry represent them. If its not the right time for him, though, I hope he gives it a try in the future. Well-educated, good hearts, good people.
DFO: Jerry Lee, the former Post Falls High football coach, is still on the Democratic primary ballot as the possible opponent for state Sen. John Goedde, R-CDA. Now, he's simply serving as a place-holder for a substitute Demo. Mebbe someone should talk him into going for it. He sounds like a decent sort. And state Rep. George Sayler proved that a Demo can win in District 4, which encompasses the city of CDA boundaries. Goedde's arrogance re: his I'mtheBear remarks and support of legislative secrecy give him two big issues to jump-start his campaign.
