Otter Jettisons Balukoff Backer

A member of Gov. Butch Otter’s education task force has been excluded from the group’s followup work — because he is now working for one of Otter’s election-year opponents. Mike Lanza, pictured — a paid member of Democratic gubernatorial candidate A.J. Balukoff’s campaign staff — says he was told Monday that he had been pulled from one of the task force’s followup committees. The call came from Richard Westerberg, a member of the State Board of Education and the chairman of the original, 31-member task force that met in 2013. Westerberg, like all State Board members, was appointed by Otter, a Republican/Kevin Richert, The EDge. More here.
