Recall Effort Begins With A Dud

RE: One park, two views: Recall's first fireworks a dud/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

  • Ron Edinger: “I'm very disappointed this is happening in Coeur d'Alene,” he said. “This council and I have worked together on many issues, agreeing and disagreeing. McEuen is a very polarizing issue and many in our community, I think, feel strongly about this. This has caused a definite split in our community.”
  • Dan Gookin — who called threats of recall excessive in a Press article before the Jan. 17 advisory vote decision — said it would be “inappropriate” to weigh in.
  • Steve Adams: “This is backlash,” council member Steve Adams said earlier this week. “It's not a surprise, I guess.”

Question (from a Facebook friend): Have Dan Gookin or Steve Adams shown any support for this movement or demonstrated any relationship to it?
