Realtors Back Currie, No One Else

A spy sent me this e-mail he received from commissioner candidate Chris Fillios: "I learned this morning (circuitously), that the Gov't Affairs Committee of the Coeur d'Alene Association of Realtors (CAR) voted to endorse Currie in my race, and no endorsement for anyone running for District 3. ... This does not surprise me -- even considering that once again Currie and Piazza were the last to respond to CAR's questionnaire. I think you can understand the impetus behind this endorsement given the recent decision by Currie and Piazza to scrap the designations and densities from the Comp Plan. Why endorse Currie and not Piazza? Perhaps to blunt the argument that the commissioner's vote to scrap the Plan was politically motivated, and secondly, because they feel my race is tighter than Dan Green's. ... To add to the drama, the Committee decided to award $999 (vs. the $1000 limit) PAC money to Currie; this way they don't need to disclose on the Sunshine Report (or the most recent version).
