Labrador hires legislative director

BOISE (AP) - U.S. Rep.-elect Raul Labrador says an attorney who has worked under two Idaho senators will serve as his legislative director in Washington, D.C.

Labrador, a Republican, unseated Democratic U.S. Rep. Walt Minnick in the Nov. 2 election to represent Idaho's 1st Congressional District.

Jason Bohrer is the latest addition to Labrador's staff.

Bohrer, a graduate of the George Mason University School of Law, most recently served as general counsel for Sen. Jim Risch. Previously, he was a regional director in eastern Idaho for former Sen. Larry Craig.

ISU faculty to hold onto complaints

POCATELLO (AP) - Faculty leaders at Idaho State University have decided not to release a 32-page list of concerns over school President Arthur Vailas - at least for now.

The Idaho State Faculty Senate decided Monday the list of faculty complaints could potentially impede efforts to work out their differences with Vailas.

The faculty panel voted in early November to hold a no-confidence vote on the president, charging Vailas with failure of leadership, among other things. But faculty canceled the vote after a state Board of Education member waded into the fray and talked to both sides.

The Idaho State Journal reports faculty leaders have agreed not to release the list of concerns until the mediation process has run its course.
