Just a comment on this in The Idaho Statesman Tuesday morning edition.
Governor Butch is refusing to meet with the Idaho Press Club tomorrow, Wednesday instead sending Lt. Gov. Brad Little. Otter’s spokesman, Jon Hanian, stated flatly, “The governor said, ‘Look, I’m not going to do it this year.’”
Idaho’s governors have met with the Idaho Press Club during the annual legislative session since the tradition began with Cecil Andrus in the early 1970s.
They did it because they honored the media’s duty to inform.
