Eye On Boise

They agree - Gould is tough, smart

Former state Rep. Celia Gould, R-Buhl, won unanimous confirmation from the Senate this morning as the new state director of agriculture. Senators noted her qualifications, including an extensive background in agriculture and service in the Legislature from 1986 to 2002. Sen. Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, recalled a time when she stood up to him on an issue. “She certainly brings with her an ability to make her wishes known,” he said. Sen. Denton Darrington, R-Declo, said, “Somebody asked me if she’s tough enough to head the Department of Agriculture – there’s your answer. She is not only tough but she is smart, and she will do well at the Department of Agriculture.”
