Edit: Hospital Election Important, Too

A key problem with politicizing nonpartisan races is this: Qualifications take a back seat to affiliations. Please, with a critically important nonpartisan local election on the horizon, don't fall into the D vs. R trap. In addition to school board elections on May 21, voters' eyes will be someplace they rarely ever go. Four candidates are running for two seats on the Kootenai Hospital District board. Can you name the seven people now serving on the panel that oversees more than 2,230 employees and a budget of more than half a billion dollars? Can you name even one?/Coeur d'Alene Press Editorial Board. More here.

Question: Can you name even one member of the current Kootenai Hospital Board?
