Huckleberries Online


In the “Take It with a Grain of Salt” Dept, Huckleberries hears … that the Tea Party faction of the Kootenai County RINO Central Committee is pushing to have three names submitted to county commissioners for the next County Clerk: Jim Brannon, Larry Spencer and Bob Pedersen. Such a lineup would mean that Brannon would be a shoo-in. But I'd categorize this one as total rumor. Among other rumors swirling out there today … include a possible struggle within the RINO CC, with one faction supporting Deputy Clerk Pat Raffee and another backing former commissioner Rick Currie. Reagan Republican Jeff Ward's name has been mentioned as a prospect, too — as has former county clerk candidate Anita Banta. Other names that have been mentioned include: Tina Jacobson, Bjorn Handeen and John Green.

Question: Who would be your choice among the names mentioned above? Why?
