The candidates fielded a question from the audience regarding their thoughts on whether the mill site land for the education corridor should have been purchased for NIC.

"If we had not accomplished the feat of adding that mill site to the land surrounding it, NIC would have been trapped in a much smaller footprint, and its opportunity to grow and to meet the needs of this community would have been severely confined." (Ron) Nilson disagreed with his opponent, and criticized the current board for moving forward on the land deal without a plan/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
