Hamilton: Challenges Face Newbies

Board chair Tom Hamilton said he's not sure what to expect from the trustees-elect. Hamilton and Trustee Terri Seymour were elected in 2011 with the support of the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans and anti-International Baccalaureate activist Duncan Koler. By December 2012, three Republican activists, including Regan and Seddon, had been appointed to fill out the five-member board. Hearn, Eubanks and Hazel were supported by Balance North Idaho, a new political action committee that does not align itself with any one political party. "The business of the board goes on, and elections happen every four years," Hamilton said. "I hope they take the time to educate themselves on the issues, to learn the depth and complexity of the issues rather than handling things the way they did during the campaign"/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Do you think hold-over Trustees Tom Hamilton and Terri Seymour are going to play well with the new trustees?
