Hayes: ‘I Stand By My Decision’

Item: Levy results create confusion: School board trustees to ask commissioners to change tabulation/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Bauman asked that trustees consider an official motion "requesting the county commissioners to consider changing the tabulation and bring the results into compliance with our intentions from the start." The trustees unanimously agreed. The decision came a day after Kootenai County Clerk Cliff Hayes told school officials that his office would not change the election tally. "I stand by my decision," Hayes told The Press on Wednesday.

Question: Should County Clerk Cliff Hayes change the final tally for Option 2 in the recent levy election, as requested by the Coeur d'Alene School Board? Or should he "stand by (his) decision"?
