You Bet Reagan R’s Are Involved

There's been some debate here re: whether or not the Reagan Republicans were involved in the recall effort against our mayor and three city council members. You bet they are. Here's an announcement in their newsletter re: the recall effort launched yesterday: "At 10:00 this morning, a citizen's group identified as RecallCdA gathered at the Coeur d'Alene City Hall to file prospective recall petitions with the City Clerk. The group says Coeur d'Alene Mayor Sandi Bloem and Council-members Mike Kennedy, Deanna Goodlander, and Woody McEvers have failed to represent the voice of the community in their excessive spending of taxpayer monies. Included in the list of examples being cited by voters across the city are the approval of a $39 million plan for McEuen Park, excessive salaries of city employees and a growing list of other projects, many made possible by the flow of property tax money being diverted into LCDC coffers, with little regard for public opinion."

Question: Do you think Ronald Reagan would be involved in an attempt to overthrow a city's nonpartisan, progressive city government simply because it wants to upgrade a park?
