Gookin: Let’s Move On, No Lawsuits

Early in the Coeur d'Alene City Council meeting Tuesday evening, Councilman Dan Gookin said that he didn't want to see the Recallers sue as a result of the failed attempt to trigger a recall election for Mayor Sandi Bloem and three council members. "This is over, done," Gookin said. "I've talked to the recall people ... we need to move on." Then, he said that the city is going forward with the upgrade to McEuen Field, adding that his job is to ensure the process is open and transparent and to make sure that the city saves every nickel possible. Later, he added that the job performed by City Clerk Susan Weathers during the trying 75 days (remember the first day wasn't counted because the Recallers had to refile the petition to trigger the petition drive) was "outstanding," calling Weathers "phenomenal and fair."

Question: I'm beginning to think that we may be allowed to move on without a lawsuit. How about you?
