Thank you, Gov. Otter, for your service to Idaho

Print Article

Dear citizens of Idaho,

We, the undersigned Republican women of Idaho, recognize and thank Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter for his many years of dedicated service to the people of our great state. We acknowledge that some had and have differing views from Governor Otter, nonetheless, we appreciate his commitment and service to the people of Idaho. We personally do not agree with the State Republican Central Committee censure of our retiring governor after his 12 years as governor and 40 years of service to Idaho.

Saturday evening, at the dinner honoring our new governor and First Lady, Gov. Phil Batt advised Gov. Brad Little “to listen to the women.” That chorus was joined by Govs. Dirk Kempthorne, Jim Risch and Otter. It was immensely ironic that on that same day, there had been an attempt at the Republican State Central Committee meeting to silence the voices of Republican women by removing the president of the Idaho Federation of Republican Women as a voting member of that committee. It is absurd to try to silence the very women who work in campaign offices throughout the state, carry our Republican message door to door and lead out in our communities as mayors, city council members, education advocates and much, much more.

So, through our combined voices as Idaho Republican women, we say thank you, Governor Otter.
