Kelly joins EPA in Seattle

Here’s a news item from the Associated Press:  BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho’s outgoing Senate minority leader is taking a job with the Environmental Protection Agency in Seattle. Sen. Kate Kelly, a Democratic senator since 2004, will be director of the Office of Ecosystems, Tribal and Public Affairs at the EPA’s regional headquarters. There, she’ll work on programs including National Environmental Policy Act, the Clean Air Act, wetlands management and ocean disposal. She’ll supervise a staff of 87 in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Kelly, elected as Senate minority leader in 2009, didn’t run for re-election this year. Before becoming a state senator, Kelly was a former administrator at the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality. A lawyer, she also served as a deputy in the Idaho attorney general’s office for six years.
