Mayor Bieter Statement on Death of Gov. Cecil Andrus

Boise Mayor David Bieter made the following statement regarding yesterday’s death of former Idaho Governor Cecil Andrus:

Few can claim a place in Idaho's history as esteemed as Cecil Andrus. His mark upon this state is indelible and respect for his capabilities near universal. He served his country and Idaho with integrity, charm and gifted foresight. Personally, he was a hero who always had wise advice and insight at the ready. No one helped me more, especially in the early years of my career. My thoughts and prayers go to Carol and the rest of the Andrus family. We have lost a truly great man.
