Hearn: Thanks To Facebook Friends

On his Facebook page, Trustee-elect Tom Hearn writes: "I took a few days off for some badly needed rest at our little lake cabin after the election campaign. While cutting grass that was up to my knees, (since I hadn't been there for a couple of months) I was thinking this weekend of all the people I have yet to thank for their help in this election. Many of those people are "friends" on Facebook. I just want to thank all of you for your help. Many people gave advice, money, their time working on the campaign, walking door to door with me or for me, distributed literature, made phone calls, gave words of support, sent me interesting article to read, wrote letters to the editor, showed up at the Fort Grounds Tavern last Tuesday night to cheer us on, "shared" Facebook posts, etc., etc." More here.

Question: What role did social media play in the recent Coeur d'Alene School Board and Kootenai Hospital Board elections?
