Ex-ENA Staffer Working For Otter

Gov. Butch Otter’s campaign finance director is a former Education Networks of America staffer who left the company in September. Martin Bilbao had worked for the Nashville, Tenn.-based company as its Idaho account services manager.

In July, ENA won a contract that could extend to 15 years at a cost of more than $33 million.
