CALDWELL CITY PLANNER PICKED TO FILL DISTRICT 10 VACANCY IN IDAHO HOUSE

(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter today appointed Jarom Wagoner, a senior planner for the City of Caldwell, to fill the Idaho House of Representatives seat vacated by the recent resignation of State Rep. Brandon Hixon.

Wagoner will complete the balance of Hixon’s term, which runs through 2018. He was the top choice among three nominees submitted to the Governor by Canyon County’s District 10 Republican Legislative Committee. Also nominated were Donald Easteppe and Jeff Taggart, also of Caldwell.

“I am grateful for the opportunity afforded me to represent and serve the people of District 10,” Wagoner said. “I look forward to this next legislative session and addressing those issues that matter most to the people of District 10 and to all the people of our great state.”

The Arizona State University graduate has been a city planner in Caldwell since July 2013. He previously was a planner for the Ada County Highway District. Wagoner also has been a Boy Scouts volunteer for 15 years. He has been active as a Republican precinct committeeman and a member of the Canyon County Republican Central Committee.

Wagoner ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination for House seat 10A in the 2012 primary election.

“Joining the Legislature mid-term makes things a little tougher for Representative Wagoner,” Governor Otter said, “but I’m confident that lawmakers and leaders will embrace him and help make his tenure positive and productive. He deserves our support in representing the people of my native Canyon County.”

Wagoner and his wife Lisa have three young sons.
