Christa Makes A Point

The best debate-within-a-debate of the evening at the Mica Grange CSD trustee forum last night was the matchup between challenge Christa Hazel, who's seen making a point in this Duane Rasmussen photo, and Trustee Brent Regan, to her right. After listening to Christa speak, Huckleberries is more amazed than ever that Kootenai County commissioners passed over her for James Purtee in making an appointment last year that swung the board hard right. Conversely, I was impressed with Regan's extensive knowledge of issues and on-the-stump charisma. The voters are getting their money's worth in this race.

DFO: Another question I wished was asked last night, particularly of these two candidates: Are you more qualified to serve as a trustee if you have children in district schools. Christa does. Brent either still home-schools his children or did home-school them. His oldest is 26.

Question: Who would you support if you were able to vote in this race?
