GOVERNOR OTTER SETS AUGUST CAPITAL FOR A DAY IN STANLEY

(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced today that the Custer County community of Stanley will host the next Capital for a Day on Friday, August 11th.

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. At this Capital for a Day, Idaho Lt. Governor Brad Little will attend and preside in the governor’s absence as Governor Otter continues to recover at home from surgery he underwent last month.

The Capital for a Day is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Stanley City Hall 510 Eva Falls Avenue, in Stanley. A $15.00-per-person lunch, open to the public, will be served at noon at The Stanley Sluice, at 250 Niece Avenue.

State officials joining Lt. Governor Little at Capital for a Day include Department of Commerce Director Megan Ronk, Idaho State Police Colonel Ked Wills, Department of Fish and Game Deputy Director Ed Schriever, Department of Agriculture Deputy Director Brian Oakey, Office of Emergency Management Administrator Brad Richy, Parks and Recreation Director David Langhorst, Department of Health and Welfare Director Russ Barron, Office of Species Conservation Administrator Dustin Miller, Idaho State Historical Society Trustee Tom Blanchard, and senior statewide and regional officials from the Idaho Transportation Department, and the Idaho Department of Water Resources, also will be on hand to answer questions about state policy and the upcoming eclipse.

"It is an honor for me to be in Stanley. Getting out into Idaho communities is a great opportunity for me to really hear what is going on throughout the state and talk to the people about their concerns and answer all their questions,” said Lt. Governor Little. “Stanley is an incredible part of Idaho with its scenic beauty and people who represent what is best in our state."
