More changes in Otter administration

Gov. Butch Otter’s office has just moved into its much tighter temporary quarters for the next two and a half years, while the state capitol is renovated. Then came news that the governor’s budget director, Brad Foltman, will retire this Friday to help care for his 91-year-old mother. Today, the governor’s education advisor, former state Board of Education member and former Pocatello city councilwoman Karen McGee, was tapped to become interim executive director of the office of the State Board of Education. McGee takes over from Dwight Johnson, who is going back to the state Department of Labor to be employment and training administrator.

State Board President Milford Terrell said, “We’re so fortunate to have someone of Karen’s experience to lead our office.” Her appointment is effective immediately.
