DAYTON TO HOST GOVERNOR OTTER’S NEXT CAPITAL FOR A DAY

(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced today that the Franklin County community of Dayton will host the next Capital for a Day on Friday, June 29th.            

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 June 29th is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Dahle Performing Arts Center, 626 N. Westside Highway in Dayton.          

State officials joining Governor Otter and First Lady Lori Otter include Lieutenant Governor Brad Little, Agriculture Director Celia Gould, Commerce Director Bobbi-Jo Meuleman, Fish and Game Director Virgil Moore, Fish and Game Commissioner Lane Clezie, Labor Director Melinda Smyser, Parks and Recreation Director David Langhorst, and Water Resources Director Gary Spackman. The Division of Building Safety, Division of Veterans Services, Idaho Lottery and Idaho State Police also will have senior representatives on hand to field questions.

“It might not be widely known, but Dayton actually is the fourth name that this southeastern Idaho town has gone by. It first was Franklin Meadows, then Five Mile Creek, and then Chadville. Finally, Bishop William B. Preston chose the lasting name simply because he always visited the settlement during the day – thus, Dayton,” Governor Otter said. “No matter what you call it, the community and the farms and ranches surrounding it have the same kinds of challenges and needs as many other parts of Idaho. But each of our citizens is unique, with their own expectations of how our State government works and its role in their life. We’re coming to Dayton to listen to those individuals, and we hope you can join us."
