Ill guv is back on the job

Despite bronchitis that prevented him from delivering a key speech yesterday, Gov. Butch Otter is back at work, and last night appeared at a campaign event with legislators. Sen. Brad Little, R-Emmett, spoke for the governor, before Otter spoke very briefly. “He had a croaky voice,” said Sen. Joyce Broadsword, R-Sagle, who attended. This morning, Otter gave the same speech he’d prepared for the Associated Taxpayers yesterday to a closed IACI board meeting, this time delivering the talk himself, highlighting his transportation funding plan. “He’s still got bronchitis,” said Otter’s press secretary, Jon Hanian. “They told him to take a couple of days off, but this is such a busy time. He’s kind of the walking wounded.”
