Will New Courthouse Bring Change?

On its Web site today, the Coeur d'Alene Press asked several readers whether they think the new county government (with new 2 new commissioners, new clerk, & new coroner) will make a difference. Darwin Clark of Coeur d'Alene said: "I really hope so. We need a change. We need to see politicians more involved with civilians." Clark went on to say: "We're in a crisis. You look at the homeless, jobless in Coeur d'Alene. There aren't a lot of jobs out here at all. There are a lot of students at North Idaho College that have been looking for four or five months and aren't getting any calls back." More here.

Question: What do you expect to be different about the new county government, particularly the commissioners office where Republicans Dan Green and Jai Nelson will replace Rick Currie and Rich Piazza?
