Victor Becomes “Capitol for a Day”

July 18, 2012 State of Idaho, Teton County, Teton Valley No Comments
Idaho Capitol

Idaho Governor “Butch” Otter announced yesterday that the community of Victor will host the next Capital for a Day next Wednesday. It is a practice in Idaho for the governor to bring State government to state residents living outside Boise, each month declaring a different town in Idaho the state’s “Capital for a Day.”  The meetings provide local residents an all-day opportunity to have open discussions about government issues with Governor Otter, members of his Cabinet and other senior State officials. Victor as “Capital for a Day” is scheduled from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Teton Springs Resort in Victor. Governor Otter also will join Mayor Zachary Smith and other local residents for a noon luncheon at the same location, hosted by State Senator John Tippets and State Representatives Marc Gibbs and Tom Loertscher.  State officials joining Governor Otter in Victor include Lieutenant Governor Brad Little, Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna; Colonel Jerry Russell, director of the Idaho State Police; Department of Parks and Recreation Director Nancy Merrill, Department of Water Resources Director Gary Spackman, and Department of Insurance Director Bill Deal.
