Realtors Endorse Write-In Currie

In an unusual move, the Coeur d'Alene Realtors Association has endorsed a write-in candidate, Commissioner Rick Currie. In an e-mail to members, Realtors CEO Rick Vernon writes: "Rick is always willing to hear our concerns and has balanced our input with other voices in the community.  He is a voice of reason in the complex development of the Kootenai County Comprehensive Plan. ...  As you are probably aware the primary vote was split almost equally among the three candidates. Chris Fillios has asked his supporters in the primary to also support Rick Currie. This would represent over 60% of the voters for this position who voted in the primary."

Question: What do you make of the Realtors endorsing a write-in candidate?
