Boise, Idaho – Governor Brad Little has hired two full-time field directors to enhance communication and outreach efforts between the Office of the Governor and Idahoans.

Jake Garringer will serve as field director in northern Idaho. Emma Johnson will serve as field director in eastern Idaho.

“I created these positions to make my office more accessible at all times across the state,” Governor Little said. “Jake and Emma will attend regional meetings, assist constituents, and keep the pulse on local issues.”

Garringer is a former program coordinator for CDA 2030, Inc. He received his undergraduate degree from Lewis University and a Master of Science from University College London.

Johnson is a former government affairs intern at Boise-based Veritas Advisors, LLP. She received her undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University Idaho.

“By meeting people where they live, we can form better working relationships to tackle Idaho’s issues,” Governor Little said. “A regional presence in the northern and eastern parts of the state ensures our children and grandchildren have the best opportunities to stay in Idaho.”
