GOVERNOR OTTER SETS JULY CAPITAL FOR A DAY IN TETONIA

(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced today that the Teton County community of Tetonia will host the next Capital for a Day on Friday, July 7th.       

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 July 7th is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Tetonia Elementary School, 215 5th N. St., in Tetonia. A $9-per-person lunch, open to the public, will be served at noon at Ruby Carson Memorial City Park

State officials joining Governor Otter and First Lady Lori Otter at Capital for a Day include Department of Commerce Director Megan Ronk, State Board of Education member Emma Atchley, Idaho State Police Colonel Ked Wills, Office of Energy and Mineral Resources Administrator John Chatburn, and Department of Fish and Game Deputy Director Sharon Keifer. Senior statewide and regional officials from the Idaho State Department of Agriculture, Idaho Transportation Department, Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Idaho Department of Labor, Idaho Department of Water Resources, Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation, and Idaho Rural Partnership also will be on hand to answer questions.

“For my 93rd Capital for a Day, I’m pleased that members of my Cabinet and I will get the chance to hear Teton County residents’ concerns and ideas about the proper role of government in their lives,” Governor Otter said. “Tourism, recreation and ranching are central to the economy and way of life here, so the State must do its part by supporting public schools and law enforcement, carefully managing natural resources, protecting rural values and empowering local priorities.”
