Tom Not Likely To Back Wanda Pick

Coeur d'Alene School Board Trustee Tom Hamilton reacting on his Facebook page to possibility of former trustee Wanda Quinn being reappointed to School Board: "She is certainly welcome to put her hat back in the ring although I don’t have any idea if she intends to. I will be honest with you and tell you that while this was never about Wanda, it will be difficult for me to support her reappointment. I would never besmirch her character, but I do feel she showed very poor judgement in allowing this to go to court. Don’t forget that Terri and I asked no less than 3 times for an administrative solution to this issue. One of those was a motion at a Board meeting that Wanda refused to allow to come to the table. I said all along that I never wanted this to go to court, but I would see it through if I had to. Unfortunately, that is the path they chose…"

Question: Does this statement affect Tom's ability to stay neutral should Wanda apply for reappointment?
