Otter to bring ‘Capital for a Day’ to Star

Gov. Butch Otter says he'll hold his next "Capital for a Day" event in his own hometown of Star on May 17th. At the events, the governor and a slew of top state officials typically meet with the public for a day in a rural Idaho town. “With just a few counties left to visit this go-round, it’s time to give the good folks right here in my hometown a chance to get some ‘face time’,” said Otter, whose ranch is near Star. “I stop in town for coffee almost every morning, but I don’t bring any Cabinet members with me."

He added, "This will give residents a chance to get their questioned answered personally and directly, and it will give members of my administration a chance to get to know a community that reflects Idaho’s rural heritage while coping with southwestern Idaho’s population growth and all that comes along with it.” Otter plans to bring along 18 high-ranking state officials. The event, which falls eight days before Idaho's primary election, will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Star City Hall, and will include a lunch at Sully's Irish Pub at noon to which the public is invited.
