Andrus on Evans: 'A strong and capable governor'

Former Idaho Gov. Cecil Andrus, who both preceded and succeeded the late Gov. John V. Evans in office, issued this statement today:

"Carol and I are deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Gov. John Evans. John was a good friend, a loyal and talented lieutenant governor to me, a fine and dedicated public official at both the local and the state level and, above all, a genuinely fine man. He'll be remembered as a strong and capable governor who fought hard to maintain a strong economy and first class educational opportunities for Idahoans. We join all Idahoans in extending our deep condolences to our dear friend, Lola Evans, the Evans family and his many, many friends in Idaho and across the nation.“
