Brent Regan

Posted: Wednesday, March 20, 2013 3:35 pm | Updated: 4:03 pm, Wed Mar 20, 2013.

Brent Regan is seeking election to the Coeur d'Alene school board seat he’s held since December.

Regan filed paperwork declaring his candidacy for the Zone 1 trustee position late Tuesday.

He is being challenged by Christa Hazel.

Regan was appointed to the five-member board following the resignation of Jim Purtee.

The deadline for candidates to file their paperwork is Friday at 5 p.m.

To seek election to a seat on the school board, an individual must be a registered voter, and a resident of the zone connected to the position for at least 30 days.

    There is no way Mr. Regan will be elected... I'm actually surprised he's running at all. It will be nice to see the climate of our board change with 3 newcomers in May.

    COG777......It's a political joke if that indeed was the content of his wife's "repeated" joke and his politics was all that mattered. Apparently something else mattered as well and there in lies the basis for the kurfluffal over the content of his wife's "joke".

    You and the defenders of Brent Regan continually rationalize away the telling of that joke and believe the reference to his color was/is insignificant. That suggests something about you, Regan, and his defenders .....

    Mr Regan's "joke" is a personal embarrassment to him for reasons he comprehends but will not admit to....that's understandable. He got caught in full public view saying that one thing about Obama that cannot be ignored and is common among those that DO NOT LIKE HIM...............

    986crazy, Flash Gordon,
    I guess we will see if all the hype and hysteria over a political not racist joke will hurt or help Brent Regan. I think most people had empathy for him over the attacks on him. Merely using the word black does not make it racist. I am sorry you think the word black is somewhat a dirty word to use. The last thing we need on the school board is a drama queen that cannot distinguish intent and not accept an sincere apology for offending someone sensitive to what you said. That would be a very poor example for the children. Brent Regan is the only candidate in my book.

    The fact that JoeIdaho supports Mr. Regan is reason enough for me to vote against him.

    Brent Regan's own "voice" speaks for his inability to grasp responsible public comments as a representative of our community's school district. Regan is a good example of someone with an education that is not very well....educated. That in itself is the irony of electing someone to the school board that keeps repeating that particular educational failure...

    A guy who repeats his wife's racist joke? Really? Is that who you want on your school board? C'mon folks, this is 2013 not 1963. I'm pretty sure a frog could run against him and win, even in Northern Idaho.

    Brent is the ONLY choice for quality, honest, respectful, knowledgeable school board leadership !!!!

    The others on this blog have done a good enough job of mentioning why.

    Brent Regan will have my vote he is by far the best choice. He is intelligent, caring,, and well educated. He does not run around to find out who has what post office box in order to create rumors and innuendos regarding his opponents.

    Ms Hazel should be "Overlooked"..And in the event of Foreseen Conflicts wouldn't it be Best for the School District to Withdrawal Herself ? Just Like She Wanted Mr Regan to Resign,Stating its Best for the District....She Showed her "True Colors".......By using "Old School Tactics"...

    Patience is a Virtue...Apparently Ms Hazel has None.....

    Look at the posters, people.
    The left wing communists, 'mister d", "flash gordon" etc, they all want a liberal in there who can help make the kids learn about the gay agenda & more about how businesses & their owners are bad people.

    Very simple, you want Conservative Values, vote for a conservative. You want your kids growing up & acting like kids do in Los Angeles & Seattle, vote for the one with the (Communist) Hammer & Sickle. Flash & misterd's candidates will ensure more gang activity & less education.
    YOU make the choice.

    Thank goodness there is another candidate to vote for in this district. Regan has not shown that he is capable of making decisions that benefit the kids. His agenda is not one I want on the Board.

    Brett Regan is the ONLY candidate to come on this comment section and face the tough questions. He actually turned my vote against the recent levy to a YES vote. I think it would be wise to keep the honest people on board.

    Brent Regan is an EXCELLENT Candidate who will fulfill what North Idahoans want in a Scholol Trustee. I AND my family will absolutely be voting for him.

    Liberals out, Conservatives IN.

    Brent Regan lacks judgement and common sense, necessary qualities as a sitting school district board member. I suppose that makes him an ideal choice for the open position......
