NAMPA — Nampa Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Mitch Minnette has wondered recently what would happen if the kerfuffle at North Idaho College were to happen at the College of Western Idaho.

“I do think about the North Idaho College stuff because it would affect the business community,” Minnette said as moderator of a chamber-hosted trustee candidates debate for CWI on Tuesday night. “It would paralyze the Nampa and Treasure Valley community if CWI does not thrive … so the chamber is going to do everything we can to make sure we support the mission of the college.”
