Contrary Mary: Don’t Believe George

Here's further proof that it's nearly impossible to please Mary Souza of In a response to another comment under a Coeur d'Alene Press thread about George Sayler's candidacy for City Council, Mary takes George to task for voting as a legislator in favor of urban renewal -- you know, the engine that has helped build the Kroc Center, library, Riverstone, Education Corridor, Prairie Trail, and other progessive projects. Worse yet, George has attended fund-raising events at thehomes of the Charlie Nipp/Steve Meyer families -- you know, the guys who developed the Ironwood Medical District and even brought us Millie & Mudgy (via Charlies wife). Now Mary's poohpoohing the idea that George would provide a second to Ron Edinger's motion for a public vote on McEuen Field. Harrumphs Mary: "But please be advised that a second is not the same as publicly standing firm against the removal of the perfectly functional boat launch and the historic, memorable American Legion ball field. Will George stand with the Friends of McEuen? ... he hasn't said. I seriously doubt it." More here (6:43 p.m. Thursday item).

Question: Do you believe George Sayler would second a motion for a public vote on McEuen Field, if he sez he will?
