If Idaho Gov. C.L. (Butch) Otter cared more about the taxpayers, his Department of Administration director, Teresa Luna, would have been sent packing two years ago. By then the Federal Communications Commission had pulled its support from the $60 million Idaho Education Network. Federal e-rate dollars covered 75 percent of the cost.The feds opted out when they learned how former Administration Director and Otter best bud Mike Gwartney had shifted the contract from low bidder Syringa Network LLC to the politically wired Qwest (now CenturyLink). But Luna kept knowledge of the federal e-rate withdrawal to herself/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.
Question: Why does Butch Otter keep former Administration Department director Teresa Luna around?
