Jayson Cornwell, a candidate for Post Falls City Council Seat No. 4, just sent this email to Huckleberries, critical of the Balance North Idaho interview process:
I find it interesting how Balance North Idaho is portraying Jim Hail. I interviewed with BNI early on in the election process, I thought that it went well. I did not however, ever receive any type of correspondence from them. I read that they will not endorse a candidate if only one candidate chooses to interview with their organization. I found this to be a little troublesome, but I understood that they are trying to remain objective. I did not appreciate the fact that they failed to mention in their endorsements, that no one else running for Seat 4 decided to show up for their interviews. I am now considering that because BNI seems to view age and how it represents “experience;” BNI would never have endorsed me to begin with.
DFO: I was surprised that neither Balance North Idaho or Reagan Republicans endorsed in this race. Jayson would have my vote. He's a young, military veteran who has served in the Middle East. I felt he was the best of the three candidates during the Post Falls candidates' forum in October. Also, I believe, Post Falls will be lucky if he continues to want to serve his community.
