Tom Hearn (Coeur d'Alene School Board candidate): I hope in this school board race that Mr. Handeen and I can focus on a good discussion about what is best for the Coeur d'Alene schools and stay away from the partisan political nonsense that has too often characterized our local non-partisan elections in recent years. I can guarantee you that if I am elected to the school board I will NOT be pursuing a partisan political agenda. I only want to work for what is best for our students, parents and teachers.

Question: Is it legitimate to look at someone's past political activism in these nonpartisan local elections?
