CSB: Seymour Vs Pickford

Coeur d’Alene School District Trustee Terri Seymour, left, considered not running for a second term. She wanted to spend more time with her children. “It was tough at times when I wasn’t able to attend some of their sports activities because I had a board meeting that lasted for six hours after I’d be at work all day,” Seymour said. But after long discussions as a family, they decided she should seek re-election. “I believe I’ve made a difference while serving my term, and I hope that I’ve had an impact on our students,” she said. Her opponent for the Zone 3 seat on the school board is Tambra Pickford, right, a parent volunteer who describes herself as “an active and involved mom to our three girls”/Scott Maben, SR.

Question: Two years ago, the community rejected three conservative hardliners in pushing the Coeur d'Alene School Board back toward the center. Trustee Terri Seymour is the only hardliner left from the previous board. She has been endorsed by Balance North Idaho. Do you think she'll win re-election?
