Keough: Cheers For ‘Capital’ Program

On my Facebook wall, state Sen. Shawn Keough commented re: Gov. Butch Otter's “Capital for a Day” program, which visited Nordman in the Priest Lake area Wednesday:

The over 200 Idahoans present at Nordman today appreciated that the Governor and several directors of state agencies as well as 2 other Land Board members took the time to spend with them. There was either and agency director or regional director from almost every state agency there. The attendees had questions throughout the entire day - from roughly 8:15 a.m until 2:00 p.m. Boise is @ 500 miles away from Nordman, and from my seat it looked like people there were glad they had a chance to talk to their elected officials and to heads of or regional directors of state agencies face to face. A rare opportunity for us and many that live here. Too rare in my view. Kudos to the Governor for his effort!

Question: Are you a fan of the “Capital for a Day” program?
