Sara: A Question For Dan Gookin

Stop the Recall co-organizer Sara Meyer has this question for Councilman Dan Gookin: "As a council member you were at the March 6th meeting where the revised plan was discussed and it was discussed at length, so why did you not respond accurately to Ms. Irgens question? You were also aware that the revised plan and costs were on the parks website. Isn’t it your duty as a council member to present factual information, especially since you have stated that you are not taking a position on the recall?"

  • From Coeur d'Alene Press story today: "While the old site was taken down Wednesday, City Councilman Dan Gookin had emailed a citizen Tuesday that the high-end estimates were still online. Eden Irgens, according to the email, asked Gookin, acting as a councilman, to clarify that the park cost $14.2 million, not $40 million. Gookin emailed Irgens back that the roughly $40 million figure was on the old McEuen park website. Full story here.

DFO: I confused things here by switching out Sara Meyer's comment from a recent thread with a letter from Eden Irgens from yesterday to which it referred. I'm reposting the original comment by Sara Meyer with a link to Eden Irgens' letter to Councilman Gookin.

Question: Mr. Gookin?
