Nesse, Trustees Argue At GOP Lunch

Democrat Anne Nesse, a candidate for Idaho House seat 4B, listens intently to Superintendent Tom Luna at the Kootenai County Republican Women's luncheon Wednesday. Nesse left the luncheon when the group began discussing recent public criticism of the Coeur d'Alene School Board. Huckleberries has learned from several sources that Coeur d'Alene School Board Chairman Tom Hamilton and Trustee Terri Seymour followed Nesse out of the room to strongly express displeasure at comments Nesse made about the school board on the Citizens for a Positive Coeur d'Alene Facebook page.

Betsy Russell/SR provides this glimpse at the race between Nesse & state Rep. Kathy Sims, R-Coeur d'Alene (More coverage of the three Legislative District 4 races here):

In the district’s other legislative seat, incumbent Rep. Kathy Sims, R-Coeur d’Alene, won the seat after Sayler retired two years ago. She’s a local car dealer and former county GOP chair who was a high-profile advocate of this year’s failed Coeur d’Alene City Council recall attempt, and has been a leading critic of the state’s urban renewal laws and of the local redevelopment agency. Sims is being challenged by Anne Nesse, a Democrat who’s a retired teacher and nurse, and who promises a more “positive” approach. “I try to look at how we can solve problems together, rather than negatively being against something without providing a positive approach,” Nesse said.
