John Foster, the dynamic young managing editor of the Idaho Business Review and a former professional bike racer, has been named the new executive director of the Idaho Democratic Party. Foster, 33, is an Idaho native who previously worked in journalism in New Mexico, and has served as an officer in several professional journalism organizations. He replaced Maria Weeg, who took a similar position with the party in Arizona. Former Idaho Gov. Cecil Andrus said, “John has the kind of competitive spirit that will be a great benefit to our party in the 2008 presidential and legislative elections.”
