Dan of the Community: I have always been an active voter and even as a solid and loyal Democrat I have chosen to vote for who I thought the best person to represent me would be among the choices I have. As has been covered many, many times before, in recent years at least, the Primary election is the final election to make a choice on many of your elected officials in Kootenai County. I vote where I think it makes the most difference. I also believe most people see a night and day difference between temporarily selecting one party ballot to vote on in the publicly funded primary (and doing so very publicly and in plain sight) vs. running as a “fake” candidate in a party that you are not a member of and in fact would work to do that party real harm if elected.
Question: I see the difference between a partisan crossing over to vote in the GOPrimary and someone, like Larry Spencer, crossing over to a party to run for elected office. Do you?
