“I sincerely hope there are more choices for Coeur d'Alene mayor or we are in trouble. Diplomacy, which I feel is a vital attribute to this position, is not present in either candidate” — Amber Copeland, Back to the Future candidate for the Coeur d'Alene City Council via Facebook.
Also from Amber's Facebook wall: “I will be turning in my city council paperwork next week. I am still deciding which seat I will be running for but I will definitely be running. I appreciate the support of those in this community who want to see a more a varied perspective in city hall.”
Question: Amber is trying to decide which seat to run for. Which one would you suggest? (BTW, I don't think Amber can turn in her paperwork for City Council until late August-early September.)
