Democratic Gov. Cecil Andrus of Idaho will represent the Democratic Party in a forum in the Marriott Center at Brigham Young University at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 1.
In May, BYU invited leaders of the two major political parties and independent candidate Ross Perot to be guest speakers during the national election campaigns. President Bush accepted the university's invitation and spoke at BYU in July.Andrus was U.S. secretary of interior in the Carter administration. He served eight years in the Idaho Senate before being elected governor in 1970 and 1974. He left office in 1977 to join the Carter administration.
In 1981, Andrus returned to Idaho and worked as a business consultant and director of Al-bert-sons Inc.
In 1986, he recaptured what he has called "the best political job in the whole world." He won re-election as governor in 1990.
Idaho Attorney General Larry EchoHawk will introduce Andrus at the Marriott Center. EchoHawk is a BYU alumnus and holds a law degree from the University of Utah.
