Hamilton: I Was Answering Honestly

Tom Hamilton re: possible application of Wanda Quinn for a trustee post in response to Christie Wood comment: "What DFO posted was taken from my (private) Facebook page and posted slightly out of context. That post was in response to a direct question asking me “what it would take to get Wanda back on the Board.” I answered that question as truthfully as I could and if you care to look, there was no political motivation in my statement or in my opinion of Wanda. Frankly, I don’t have the faintest idea what Wanda’s political persuasion may be and neither do I care. You must also keep in mind that any opinion I have of Wanda on the Board is based on my experience serving with her since last July as well as her answers to the interview questions (which I heard in person) when she was selected to the Board. Were Wanda to reapply all of those things would factor into any decision I made as well as my stated opinion that I feel she exercised very poor judgement in how she personally handled the controversy of her own appointment.

DFO: The post wasn't exactly private in that it has been posted on for more than a week.

Question: Tom brings up a good question. Should a public figure consider his Facebook page private?
