GOVERNOR OTTER REACTS TO PASSING OF CECIL ANDRUS

(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter issued the following statement today in reaction to Thursday’s death of former Interior Secretary and four-term Governor Cecil Andrus.

“Cecil Andrus made everyone around him better. He was a mentor to me and many others, raising our standards and inspiring us to think big. He combined stubborn idealism with common sense – a lunch-bucket liberal proudly reflecting his timber country upbringing and values. Whatever you thought of his politics, Cece was always true to what he believed, and he believed in Idaho. His voice will be missed in our public life, and I will miss his counsel and friendship. Carol and the Andrus family are in our thoughts and prayers.”
