HAYDEN LAKE TO HOST MAY CAPITAL FOR A DAY

(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced today that the Kootenai County community of Hayden Lake will host the next Capital for a Day on Thursday, May 25th.        

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 May 25th is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hayden Lake Country Club, 2362 E. Bozanta Dr., in Hayden Lake. A $15 per person no-host lunch, open to the public, will be served at the same location.

State officials joining Governor Otter and First Lady Lori Otter at Capital for a Day include Lieutenant Governor Brad Little, Department of Commerce Director Megan Ronk, Department of Lands Director Tom Schultz, Department of Environmental Quality Director John Tippets, Office of Species Conservation Administrator Dustin Miller, Dr. Linda Clark of the State Board of Education, Jim Coleman of the Idaho Transportation Board, and Deputy Director Russ Barron of the Department of Health and Welfare. Senior statewide and regional officials from the Idaho State Department of Agriculture, Division of Building Safety, Transportation Department and Department of Water Resources also will be on hand.

 “Despite all our modern communication abilities, it’s natural in a state as big and rugged as Idaho for folks to feel even more remote than they really are from their State government – from the people who make important decisions that affect their daily lives,” Governor Otter said. “I know my Cabinet members join me in appreciating the opportunity to hear directly from the citizens of Kootenai County and all over the Panhandle about the issues that matter to them.”
