Looks like Governor Otter will finally stop taking the stipend in April. Renovations on the Simplot mansion will be complete but he still has no plans to reside there. I blogged this awhile back: "Why are we paying for and empty mansion" and it has since received national and local media attention. He has apparently taken a recent $500.00 dollar reduction to reflect the hard times and budget constraints. Too bad it still more than most Idahoans make in a month. Whatever helps you to sleep at night I guess.

I read about this today in the Coeur d'Alene Press.  Impressive...  Nice of him, isn't it?

Pretty powerful to think that what we do put out there can make a difference. Keep up the good work.

That's almost enough to pay a couple of new teachers first year salary.

Idahoans don't make $500 a month? Wow. I thought the states in the South, like Mississippi and Alabama, were at the bottom of the income list.

Russel,

Most Idahoans don't make 4K a month.  That is what he is currently taking for the stipend.
