Mary Souza has failed a basic test in her “job application” to be our mayor. When the question is, “How can I contribute $1,000 to your campaign and keep my name secret?” The answer is not, “Find some agency name to hide behind.” The answer is “You can’t.” Not even, “Let’s try an agency, and I can always give it back.” This is an astounding lapse in judgment from someone who likes to talk about “transparency.” By the way, the implication that those in office meet in “back rooms” is to accuse them of illegal activity. If someone has that info, put it up! It’s a serious accusation, easy to imply because one would have to prove a negative to defend oneself/Cory English, letter to the editor, Coeur d'Alene Press.

DFO: Letter writer Cory English brings up a great point. If Mary, Dan & Bill truly have information re: backroom deals and malfeasance in office by the Bloem administration and city office holders, now is the time to put up or shut up. Once and for all. These serious innuendos have been going on for some time out of that camp.
