Boise State University political scientist Jim Weatherby – a well-known authority on Idaho politics who’s been following Idaho’s political scene for decades – will retire from Boise State this week after 17 years. Weatherby, 63, will become a professor emeritus, and still plans to follow and analyze Idaho politics. Before joining BSU, Weatherby was on the faculty at the University of Idaho and Northwest Nazarene University, and he headed the Association of Idaho Cities for 15 years. His last day on the job at BSU will be Friday.
