Stickman: Voting for Dan English

Stickman (RE: English circulates fliers): "People vote for who they want to. I doubt many friends of mine would listen to my political views. But, that said, I'm sure going to vote for him. I think he's the best man for the job."

DFO: I used to be active re: telling friends and family who they should or shouldn't vote for. One of the last times I did so, I persuaded 4 other members of my immediate family to vote for Mike Kennedy over Jim Brannon in that wild & crazy Coeur d'Alene City Council race from several years ago. 5 of us. Kennedy won by 3 votes ultimately. If Brannon had won, I doubt that we would have McEuen Park and other urban renewal benefits in the community. I remain satisfied that Kennedy carried the Portuguese precincts that year.

Question: Do people ask you for advice re: how to vote?
