GOVERNOR’S 104TH CAPITAL FOR A DAY TO BE HELD IN MADISON COUNTY

(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced today that the Madison County community of Sugar City will host his 104th Capital for a Day on Friday, August 24th.            

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 opportunity to meet with the Governor, selected members of his Cabinet and other senior State officials is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Sugar-Salem High School, #1 Digger Drive, in Sugar City. A first-come, first-served luncheon will be provided from 12:30 p.m. – 1:15 p.m. in the school cafeteria.

State officials joining Governor Otter and First Lady Lori Otter include Lieutenant Governor Brad Little, Idaho Department of Commerce Director Bobbi-Jo Meuleman, Idaho Department of Environmental Quality Director John Tippets, Idaho Department of Fish and Game Director Virgil Moore, Idaho Department of Labor Director Melinda Smyser, PERSI Director Don Drum, and Idaho State Department of Agriculture Deputy Director Brian Oakey. The departments of Parks and Recreation, Transportation, and Water Resources also will have senior representatives on hand to field questions.

“My first Capital for a Day in Sugar City was a wonderful visit and held on Halloween of 2008. Ten years later I am looking forward to a treat, a repeat performance in a vibrant, rural community that has grown tremendously over that time,” said Governor Otter. “People in Sugar City are doing what people all over our great state are trying to do, and that is balance the need for growth and expanded opportunities with the healthy desire to maintain our great quality of life. I am eager to see what we can do in state government to help them achieve their goals."
