Coeur d’Alene TV: Mike Vs. Tom

Here's the clip of the exchange between Coeur d'Alene City Councilman Mike Kennedy and Coeur d'Alene School Board Chairman Tom Hamilton at last night's council meeting, courtesy of Coeur d'Alene TV Channel 19:

In the comments section, Kim Knerl sez: “However, this was on Tom’s personal Facebook page which has zero connection to his position with the School Board and absolutely nothing to do with the negotiations between the School Board and the City Council.”

Question: Should a publicly elected official be surprised when his Facebook/Twitter comments attract public comment and criticism?
