Mary Describes ‘Awkward Statement’

In her latest newsletter, Mary Souza claims North Idaho College Trustee Mic Armon was trying to trade on her name by mention at a luncheon that he used to be her neighbor:

“NIC Trustee Mic Armon, who is running for re-election, showed up last Thursday for his first time at the Republican Women’s lunch meeting. When he was given 2 minutes to speak, he tried to assure the audience that he really is a Republican, and then he added a very awkward statement:  Mic told the crowd, as he gestured to where I was sitting, “I was Mary Souza’s next door neighbor for many years.” While it is true that we were neighbors and we can have a cordial conversation about our kids, I do not support Mic's election.  Mic's comment seemed opportunistic; a way for him to use me to influence people in the room.  He must be worried.” More here.
