NEXT CAPITAL FOR A DAY SCHEDULED FOR HANSEN

(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced today that the Twin Falls County community of Hansen will host the next Capital for a Day on Friday, March 17th.      

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 17th is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hansen High School, 550 S. Main St. in Hansen.

State officials joining Governor Otter and First Lady Lori Otter at Capital for a Day include Lieutenant Governor Brad Little, Department of Agriculture Director Celia Gould, Department of Labor Director Ken Edmunds, Department of Commerce Director Megan Ronk, Department of Fish and Game Director Virgil Moore, Department of Insurance Director Dean Cameron, Department of Parks and Recreation Director David Langhorst, Office of Emergency Management Administrator Brad Richy, Office of Energy and Mineral Resources Administrator John Chatburn, Division of Building Safety Administrator Chris Jensen; John Barrett, executive director of the Idaho Rural Partnership; Devin Rigby, District Four engineer for the Idaho Transportation Department; and Corey Skinner, Department of Water Resources regional manager.     

“It’s been a tough winter throughout Idaho, and towns in the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia areas have been hit especially hard by once-in-a-generation if not once-in-a-lifetime storms, snow and flooding. Hearing directly about the challenges of folks in and around Hansen will help those of us in State government to do our jobs better and bring help more efficiently where it’s needed most,” Governor Otter said. “Our immediate focus is on infrastructure damage. But we’ll also be listening to citizens’ ideas for improving how we do business long after the repairs are done.”
