Otter makes Brandt a county commissioner

Former state Sen. Skip Brandt, R-Kooskia, who gave up his Senate seat to run unsuccessfully for Congress last year, was appointed to an opening on the Idaho County Commission today by Gov. Butch Otter. Brandt, 42, succeeds Commissioner John Schurbon, who died on Feb. 27 less than two months after taking office. Brandt, a hardware store co-owner and former Kooskia mayor, was among three candidates nominated by the county GOP central committee. “He will do a great job on the Idaho County Commission, and I’m proud to be able to make this appointment,” Otter said.
