Unapologetic Democrat: I was incredibly impressed at the meeting by Mike Kennedy’s skillful leadership but I also thank you Mr. Hamilton for how you handled yourself and the school board. I think the deal you all came to is a “win win” for everybody as Hazel Bauman said.
DFO: I absolutely agree. This deal happened as a result of the leadership of Councilman Mike Kennedy and School Board Chairman Tom Hamilton. Also, it happened because the elected officials were performing before a live audience that wanted the deal done -- and the unelected negotiators were pushed to the sidelines. Good day for Coeur d'Alene. And common sense.
