Eubanks: Trustees Don’t Represent All

In a candidates' profile of his race with appointed Trustee Ann Seddon, challenger Dave Eubanks said:

“I think the three biggest issues are what I mentioned a few minutes ago - communication, collaboration and trust - all of which have taken a huge hit in the last year or so, because our school board has become highly politicized,” Eubanks said. “These nonpartisan positions are no more on this school board. It's all about the party and towing the party line.” Eubanks said that's unfair because there are many stakeholders who don't buy into the party line. “There are lots and lots of stakeholders who feel left out. They feel that no one is listening to them. They feel that no one cares. They feel that the school district basically belongs to one group only,” Eubanks said/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Trustee Brent Regan has opined that the Coeur d'Alene School Board is a diverse group. Above, challenger Dave Eubanks says the board represents only one group of people. Who's right?
