Brent Regan (middle), shown during a demonstration against Kootenai County's land-use code by United Conservatives of North Idaho, was selected to fill a vacancy on the Coeur d'Alene School Board Monday night.
School board members in Coeur d'Alene selected Brent Regan Monday for appointment to the district's board of trustees. Regan's selection was made following a two-hour and 15-minute public interview of three potential candidates, including Christa Hazel and Casey Morrisroe. The sitting board members - Tom Hamilton, Terri Seymour, Ann Seddon and Jim Hightower — grilled the trustee hopefuls, asking questions that touched on a broad range of issues including school safety, the upcoming maintenance and operations levy that will go before voters in March, the recently eliminated International Baccalaureate high school program and the Primary Years Programme at Hayden Meadows Elementary, and how they will deal with it when they find themselves in disagreement with some of their constituents/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Are you surprised by the selection?
