“During our conversation at the CDA Library I chastised you for falsely and publicly characterizing a person's position without doing the due diligence of first talking to that person. You apologized and assured me it would never happen again and yet here you are doing EXACTLY the same crime" -- Brent Regan comment today, on Coeur d'Alene Press online site.
"I just spoke to Tony. He shared his discussion with Brent Regan at the library. This is what Tony told me "Brent approached me and said I have no integrity. My exact response to him was Mr. Regan we did not ask you to resign from the Board. When you did apologize we accepted your apology. That is all I said to him and walked away. There was no other discussion as he indicated" -- Christie Wood, president, Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations.
Tony Stewart has contacted both Huckleberries and Coeur d'Alene Press Editor Mike Patrick to challenge an online statemnt made today in the Press by former Coeur d'Alene school trustee Brent Regan. In an email to Huckleberries, Stewart said: "I was to say the least shocked that Mr. Brent Regan indicated that I apologized to him and it would never happen again. My very words were as told to Christie Wood listed below. I had no reason to apologize. Tom Carter, the Executive Director, of the Human Rights Education Institute was present with me. He can verify the conversation. It is so important to set the record straight and I thank both of you."
