The governor’s office is making a correction – it turns out the Steve Kren that Gov. Otter appointed to the Legislature is NOT a Nampa city councilman – he’s the son of the Nampa city councilman who shares his name. “It happens all the time, I am told, because they’re both involved in politics, they’re both in Nampa, and they’re both named Steve Kren,” said a just slightly red-faced Mark Warbis, Otter’s communications director.
Warbis said Otter wasn’t confused about which Steve Kren he appointed – he appointed the son, who is under 30 and who was nominated by a party district committee. “There was no confusion about that – it was only confusion about that information,” he said.
