Marv Hagedorn of Meridian, who lost to Rep. Mark Snodgrass, R-Meridian, in the GOP primary in District 20 last spring, has been appointed to the House by Gov. Butch Otter to replace Rep. Shirley McKague, who was appointed to the Senate. Hagedorn, who is vice chairman of Idaho Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife, took 40.8 percent of the vote to Snodgrass’ 59.2 percent in the primary. Now the two will represent the same district.
