Not only is Dan of the Community voting in the closed GOPrimary election this spring, but former Coeur d'Alene councilman Mike Kennedy is, too. Mike told Huckleberries moments ago that he voted in the GOPrimary two years ago, unaffiliated afterward, and plans to affiliate with the Republican Party again this year. “No one is going to take away my right to be involved in deciding who my elected officials are,” Mike said. Mike added that he supports the right of Dan of the County to affiliate with the local Republican Party, too. He said local Democrats should be involved in picking the best candidates.
