Education Networks of Idaho — the recipient of a state WiFi contract that will be worth more than $2.1 million in 2013-14 and could run for 15 years — has been an active player in Idaho campaign finance. The Nashville, Tenn.-based company contributed $38,750 in the 2010 and 2012 election cycles. A few fast facts:
- The biggest benefactor was state schools superintendent Tom Luna, who announced the contract Wednesday. He received $5,500 during his 2010 re-election campaign, and has received another $500 since then.
- Gov. Butch Otter received $3,000 during the 2010 campaign, and has received $1,250 since then.
- The biggest benefactor in the Legislature: Senate Education Committee Chairman John Goedde, who has received $2,250 from ENA. More from Kevin Richert/The EDge here.
