In a letter to the Coeur d'Alene Press editor today, former appointed Trustee Jim Purtee endorses the candidacy of another appointed trustee for Coeur d'Alene School Board, Ann Seddon (who is opposed by Dave Eubanks):
Ann’s hard work has found 48.8 percent of graduates in our local high schools require remediation in math prior to proceeding with college courses. 39 percent of those graduates require remediation in English/Reading. Ms. Seddon along with others works hard for the benefit of Coeur d’Alene students. She works to benefit “all” students. Not to simply please teachers or administration or even some parents. Ms. Seddon has never resorted to characterizing trustee candidates as wackos, Aryans, ultra left or right, etc. She instead represents a steadfast display of character, intelligence, dedication to school children and community. She is perfect for the job as Trustee.
Question: Do you know enough about the School Board races to vote intelligently in your zone?
