Twin Falls Paper ♥ Henderson Idea

When College of Southern Idaho Trustee LeRoy Craig was defeated for reelection last fall, Jerome County — one of two counties in the community college district — lost its only representative on the board. But legislation, co-sponsored by state Sen. Bert Brackett, R-Three Creek; Rep. Bert Stevensen, R-Rupert; Rep. Maxine Bell, R-Jerome, and two other House Republicans (including Frank Henderson), would change that. The bill, introduced on Thursday in the House State Affairs Committee, would require community college trustee elections to be held by subdistrict, rather than at-large as they are now. … It’s a good idea/Twin Falls Times-News Editorial Board.

Question: Can this legislation be called the “Nilson-Ketchum Revenge Bill”?
