GOVERNOR CHOOSES COUNCIL RANCHER TO FILL ADAMS COUNTY COMMISSION VACANCY

(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced the appointment today of Council rancher Joseph Iveson to the Adams County Commission vacancy left by the April 5 death of Commissioner Joe Holmes of Indian Valley.

Iveson has been a cow/calf producer in Adams County since 2001, and since 2007 he also has been regional sales manager for a cattle feed company for which he previously was district sales manager in California. He has an associate’s degree in beef production management from what now is BYU-Idaho – then Ricks College in Rexburg – and has been coaching Council Junior High boys’ basketball since 2015.

“Joe is active in his church and community, and he has the communication skills and management experience to succeed in this new role,” Governor Otter said. “He’s a responsive businessman who knows how to get things done. I’m confident that the citizens he represents will be well-served by his addition to the Adams County Commission.”

Iveson was the top choice among three candidates for the position submitted to Governor Otter by the Adams County Republican Central Committee. He will serve the balance of Holmes’ term, which expires in January 2019.
