MCCALL WILL HOST GOVERNOR OTTER’S MARCH CAPITAL FOR A DAY
(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced today that the Valley County community of McCall will host his next Capital for a Day on Monday, March 24th.
Governor Otter brings State government to Idahoans living outside Boise each month by making a different town in Idaho the state’s “Capital for a Day.” The meetings provide local residents an opportunity to have open discussions about government issues and public policy with Governor Otter, members of his Cabinet and other senior State officials.
The Capital for a Day on March 24th is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Idaho First Bank, 475 Deinhard Lane in McCall. Governor Otter and First Lady Lori Otter also will join local officials and residents at noon for a no-host lunch at the Pancake House, 209 N 3rd St., in McCall.
State officials joining Governor Otter at Capital for a Day will include Lieutenant Governor Brad Little, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna, Department of Health and Welfare Director Dick Armstrong, Idaho Tax Commission Chairman Rich Jackson, Department of Fish and Game Director Virgil Moore, Department of Lands Director Tom Schultz, Department of Parks and Recreation Director Nancy Merrill; Department of Insurance Director Bill Deal; Jeff Anderson, administrator of the Idaho Liquor Division and director of the Idaho Lottery; Office of Species Conservation Administrator Dustin Miller, and State Board of Education member Don Soltman. Also on hand will be representatives from the Department of Commerce, Department of Labor, Idaho Transportation Department and the Department of Water Resources.
“Valley County is more than Boise’s playground; it’s a community of proud and self-reliant folks who value what they have and want both to share it with the world and protect it for their children and grandchildren. I agree with them,” Governor Otter said. “My Cabinet and I look forward to hearing about their hopes and concerns, as well as their ideas for making the McCall area and all of Idaho the best it can be.”
