Tony Stewart: I Never Urged Secrecy

In a letter to the Coeur d'Alene Press today, human-rights leader Tony Stewart, pictured, clarifies his position in the "Add the Words" controversy involving the Coeur d'Alene School Board: There appears to be both confusion and misunderstanding regarding my conversation some weeks ago at the U.S. Post Office when approached by School Board 271 Board Chairman Tom Hearn. I shared with him the idea that one should always research in-depth any issue prior to a public hearing. I did not recommend that the people’s business should be done in private. I gave him the example of the process we used regarding last year’s adoption of the city of Coeur d’Alene anti-discrimination ordinance. More here. (SR file photo)
