Jennifer, Sara Form New Group

Jennifer Drake and Sara Meyer, the organizers of the successful anti-recall movement, haven't gone away. They just launched Citizens for a Positive Coeur d'Alene, a nonpartisan group dedicated to keep Coeur d'Alene “moving in a positive direction.” Jennifer explains to Huckleberries: “We come from all walks of life, all backgrounds, many professions, and various political parties. However, we all have one thing in common: we love Coeur d’Alene. It is our goal to create a forum wherein many individuals can come together and respectfully discuss issues that matter to our community.” And: “It will start with Facebook, but we will have a website, email, and definitely meet ups for people to chat face to face. We will discuss ways to be positively involved in the community, and I'm sure a big part of the discussion will involve upcoming elections. However, we are committed to staying nonpartisan.” You can find the Facebook site of Citizens for a Positive Coeur d'Alene here.

Question: I'm jazzed about this development. How about you?
