Governor Butch Otter visits Aberdeen to participate in Capitol for a day.
Governor Butch Otter and his cabinet make a stop in cities across Idaho once a month to open the floor for anyone who wants to ask questions or give input on state issues.
The floor was open and the main topic was education, ranging from charter school grants to getting Idaho’s classroom up to date with technology. Other topics that were mentioned include water rights, environmental quality, and issues with child support.
A school board member and Governor Otter both agree that having these types of open conversations is a good start to reforming Idaho’s education.
"I think it gives the Aberdeen community a wonderful opportunity to talk to our governor on a one on one basis, and that rarely happens,” said Julie Vanorden, a school board member.
The opportunity here is really to bring the governor out of Boise, right to the local, small communities that don’t always get an opportunity to have face time with the directors of the agencies that we have,” added Governor,” “Butch” Otter.
