Stennett won’t return this session

Senate Minority Leader Clint Stennett, D-Ketchum, announced today that he won't be able to return before the end of the legislative session this year. Stennett, who is undergoing treatment for brain cancer, said it was "very disheartening to not participate this session." Though his prognosis remains positive, his recovery is demanding all of his energy and focus, Stennett said in a statement.  Jon Thorson, former mayor of Sun Valley, is standing in for him. Senate Assistant Minority Leader Kate Kelly, D-Boise, is acting minority leader.
