WILDER TO HOST SEPTEMBER CAPITAL FOR A DAY

(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced today that the Canyon County community of Wilder will host the next Capital for a Day on Tuesday, September 26th.       

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 September 26th is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Mercer Hall, 210 A Avenue East, in Wilder. The Wilder Economic Development Commission also is hosting lunch, open to the public, 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 Agriculture Director Celia Gould, Department of Commerce Director Megan Ronk, Department of Water Resources Director Gary Spackman, Department of Parks and Recreation Director David Langhorst, Division of Building Safety Administrator Chris Jensen, General Brad Richy of the Idaho Office of Emergency Management, State Board of Education Executive Director Matt Freeman, and Don Drum, executive director of the Public Employee Retirement System of Idaho. Also on hand will be Kimberly Simmons of the State Public Defense Commission, State Appellate Public Defender Erick Frederickson, Department of Labor Deputy Director Roy Valdez, and Department of Fish and Game Deputy Director Sharon Kiefer.   

“I’m looking forward to bringing Capital for a Day to the citizens of my native Canyon County,” Governor Otter said. “I’ve spent a lot of time in the Wilder area over the years, and I have a pretty good understanding of what makes the community and its people tick. But it’s good to get a fresh take on local priorities and concerns, so come out and see us!"
