Hamilton, Seymour Protest Process

Tom Hamilton and Terri Seymour, who were elected in the Coeur d'Alene School District trustee races last month, are accusing the district of "unnecesssarily rushing the appointment process" of Chairwoman Edie Brooks. In a letter sent to Superintendent Hazel Bauman and the Coeur d'Alene Press, Hamilton and Seymour said no reason has been given to expedite the process. And they contend that the district and other trustees are trying to exclude them from providing input. They said in the letter: "We wish to make clear our desire to be included, so that we can start to build a foundation for cooperation among trustees." You can read the rest of the letter here.

Question: Should Hamilton & Seymour be included in the selection process for a new trustee? Or will that deadlock the process?
