Mailbag: Todd & Rich Will Do Great

Former Mike: Always hate to disagree with you Dave, but I think Todd and Rich will be effective over the next two years. They are both well aware of the major issues and I believe both are willing to do the right think for the right reason. Plus, they have the HBO crowd to hold their feet to the fire!

DFO: Former Mike, welcome back. I’ve been missing the insight provided by the last Demo to hold a Kootenai County commissioner position. With all of my being, I hope you’re right, Mike. I want to see Todd and Rich succeed, big time. And I’m hoping Rick sees what happened to his two colleagues Tuesday as a sign that it’s time to fulfill the potential that people thought he had when they elected them. All three of these guys are working stiffs who may be vulnerable to the siren call from Hagadone HQ and richy rich local developers. On the other hand, you saw what that siren call got Katie. I’ll be first in line applauding if these three become leaders of a citizen revolt to rein in taxes and truly hold developers feet to the fire.
