Malmen out, Kreizenbeck in

All the way from China (where he’s on a trade mission this week), Gov. Butch Otter today announced that Jason Kreizenbeck, currently director of government affairs for Micron Technology, will be his new chief of staff – succeeding Jeff Malmen at the end of November. Idaho Power Co. announced today that Malmen has accepted a senior position on its public affairs team, and will start work there at the end of the month.

Here’s Otter’s statement from across the miles: “Jeff’s great political instincts and encyclopedic knowledge of Idaho were a key element of my success during six years in Congress and my first year as governor. I lack the words to fully express my gratitude for his contribution, his counsel or his friendship. Transitions are always difficult, but it’s comforting to know that I will have a new chief of staff cut from the same bolt of cloth.”
