Family issues prompted Idaho Governor Butch Otter to reschedule his planned Capital for a Day in Dayton towards the end of June. So the Franklin County community is getting a make-up day as Idaho’s virtual capital city this Friday, July 27th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Dahle Performing Arts Center, 626 N. Westside Highway. The governor brings state government to Idahoans living outside Boise each month by making a different town in the state a capital for a day.
The meetings provide local residents an opportunity to have open discussions about government issues and public policy with the governor, members of his cabinet and other senior state officials. It will be the third Capital for a Day in Franklin County during Governor Otter’s three terms in office.
State officials joining the governor and First Lady Lori Otter include State Controller Brandon Woolf, Commerce Director Bobbi-Jo Meuleman, Fish and Game director Virgil Moore, Fish & Game Commissioner Lane Clezie and many others, including senior representatives from the State Department of Agriculture, the Department of Insurance, Department of Parks and Recreation, Idaho Transportation Department, the Idaho Lottery, Idaho State Police, Division of Veterans Services and Local Highway Technical Assistance Council.
