FIRTH TO HOST FEBRUARY CAPITAL FOR A DAY

(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced today that the Bingham County community of Firth will host the next Capital for a Day on Wednesday, February 28th.           

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 February 28th is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Firth City Hall, 106 E. Center Street in Firth. The City of Firth will provide a catered community luncheon at the same location.       

State officials joining Governor Otter include Lieutenant Governor Brad Little, Agriculture Director Celia Gould, Commerce Director Bobbi-Jo Meuleman, Environmental Quality Director John Tippets, Fish and Game Director Virgil Moore, Water Resources Director Gary Spackman,  Idaho State Police Colonel Ked Wills, Office of Energy and Mineral Resources Administrator John Chatburn, Office of Species Conservation Administrator Dustin Miller, Tax Commissioner Janet Moyle, Parks and Recreation Board Chairman Pete Black, and Dwight Horsch of the Idaho Transportation Board. The departments of Health and Welfare, Labor, and Lands, as well as the Division of Building Safety, also will have representatives on hand to take questions.

“Firth hosted Capital for a Day in April 2008, during my second year as governor. A decade later, we’re back to hear once again from the people of Bingham County about the issues that matter most to them,” Governor Otter said. “It’s my 99th Capital for a Day, and every one of them has brought needed perspective and clarity to how we can better serve our citizens. I’m grateful for everyone who comes out to let us know how we’re doing in fulfilling the proper role of government."
