Gov. Cecil Andrus worked closely with the Northwest’s governors from both parties to support and defend the public power system and seek bipartisan solutions for salmon restoration. So, it is fitting that the Andrus Center for Public Policy convenes a forum on April 23, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., designed to encourage action and discussion and to bring together the leaders and groups who can find and implement a long-term plan that meets everyone’s needs. It will be held at Boise State University SUB, Jordan Ballroom.
