Recall Fails; Orzell: No Litigation

Item: Recall effort fails: RecallCdA organizer Frank Orzell has no plans to pursue litigation/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

Mayor Sandi Bloem: "This isn't a victory celebration ... It's difficult it happened. I think anyone can say it's been difficult and tough, no matter what your view is on the recall. One has to look at what has happened and say, 'What have we learned from this? What is positive out of this?' And I do think there are some positives. One is, I think a lot more people were engaged and tried to know the facts and tried to know what's going on and listening to both sides and getting involved. And particularly with younger people, I saw. And the community needs that. In order to be more healthy, we need to be more engaged."

Question: What do you see as the silver lining to the recall attempt?
