Local R’s To Appoint Media Panel

Item: One party, one voice? Republicans consider liaison to deal with press/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: The Kootenai County Republican Central Committee wants a more efficient communication line with the media. Unsatisfied with recent writeups, the committee is considering forming a subcommittee to represent the group's official voice in a timely fashion for future news stories. "Basically it's uncharted waters for everyone," KCRCC Chair Tina Jacobson said in a message left at the Press. "Instead of having individuals run to the press, you could have a liaison."

Question: Is this a move to provide a unified voice for local Republicans? Or an attempt to silence dissenters?
