Coeur d'Alene City Council candidate Adam Graves is upset that he won't be allowed to use his iPad at the televised CDATV candidates forum Wednesday afternoon. He wrote this letter to City Clerk Susan Weathers, who had advised him of the change: "You are going to force me to use outdated technology (notes and print outs like some 75 year old politician). Wow, this is exactly what is wrong with government. What year is it again? Do you expect me to run the city the same way once elected -- "level the playing field" to what the lowest and oldest common denominator? Give me a break. If this is the city's stance then I propose NOTHING should be allowed to be brought by anyone. Information is information. Period. Otherwise I am being singled out personally for utilizing a new and better information source which is not as harmful to our environment." The Coeur d'Alene debates will be taped at 4:30 p.m. Thursday in the Coeur d'Alene Library Community Room.
Question: Does Adam have a good point?
