CdA Board Declares Trustee Vacancy

Nearly three weeks after a district court judge ruled Wanda Quinn's appointment to the Coeur d'Alene School District Board of Trustees to be “null and void,” the four remaining trustees have officially declared a vacancy in the board's Zone 1 seat. At a special board meeting held Monday, trustees also elected to hire outside counsel, other than longtime school district attorney, Charles Dodson, to review and advise them on the process of selecting another appointee. “I think the conflict there is a little too close,” said Trustee Tom Hamilton (pictured), who made the motion to seek alternate representation. The vote was 3-1 in favor of removing Dodson from handling school board business that falls under Idaho Code 33-504, the section of state education law specifically related to school board vacancies. Diane Zipperer cast the lone dissenting vote/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Do you think the Coeur d'Alene School Board will have an easy time finding a consensus candidate?
