In today’s CdA Press, NIC Trustee Christie Wood refutes claims made by Rep. Kathy Sims in a recent column: “The Education Corridor represents the greatest step forward, to date, in bringing the opportunity for higher education to North Idaho taxpayers. To allege that highly reputable officials would put their name, reputation, and energy into an illegal endeavor is farfetched and defamatory. Ms. Sims states ‘The current NIC Board of Trustees has made great plans but in their haste to see their dreams fulfilled, they seem to have forgotten a pending lawsuit that challenges the constitutionality of their actions.’ FACT: The lawsuit she refers to has resulted in a summary judgment in favor of NIC. The court ruled the lease agreement to be legal. Full column here.
Question: Why do you suppose Sims and Souza keep hammering on the lawsuit filed against North Idaho College over the purchase of the Education Corridor — and fail to mention that a judge has declared the purchase legal?
