Hammond To Apply For NIC Prez Job

Sen. Jim Hammond, R-Coeur d'Alene, says the main reason he won't seek a fourth term in the Senate is that he wants to stop spending so much time away from his wife, kids and grandkids. “I'm missing my grandkids' plays and baseball games,” he said. “Five years from now, nobody's going to remember what I did here, but my grandkids will remember that I was there.” Hammond said he plans to apply for the upcoming opening for president at North Idaho College, as well as looking at other options that will keep him closer to home and family. “I have not applied, but I intend to,” he said/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

  • DFO: I was a Hammond fan until he signed on w/Nonini & Goedde to ride the U.S.S. Luna education reforms. Also concerned that he might share anti-Education Corridor sentiment as other Post Falls area legislator, Nonini & Henderson. Seems as though he's been putting partisan politics ahead of education for awhile.

Question: Would Jim Hammond be a good North Idaho College president?
