Christie Wood: I saw your thread that the RR’s (Reagan Republicans) are targeting Judy Meyer and Mic Armon because they want to replace them with more conservative people. It just does not. make. sense. to. me. There does not seem to be any dialogue about education itself and what we need to have in place for future students. Past candidates have been very vocal about their oppostion to the Ed. Corridor. As I rode through there today it became very clear people must get involved and vote in small local elections. If the other candiates had prevailed the Ed. Corridor would still be a closed mill site with an old industrial look to it, with no public waterfront access. Students that are seeking programs in the health sciences (the long term goal of Ed Corridor programs)would need to leave home for those education opportunities.Long story short, Mic and Judy are to be thanked for their contributions, and I certainly hope they retain their board seats.
DFO: The choices for 2 or the 3 North Idaho College trustee positions are easy: incumbents Judy Meyer and Mic Armon are superb trustees. The third choice is more complicated since Trustee Ron Vieselmeyer is not seeking re-election. Ground Force boss Ron Nilson is running again, with support of the Reagan Republicans. Also in the race are: Gary W. Coffman, of Coeur d'Alene; James W. Ruch, of Coeur d'Alene; Fritz Wiedenhoff, of Rathdrum; and Dean Haagenson, of Hayden.
Question: Who would you pick for the third trustee, if you don't support Nilson?
