Two Pocatello reps elected co-chairs of new redistricting commission

Former state Sen. Evan Frasure of Pocatello, and former state Rep. Allen Andersen, also of Pocatello, have been elected the co-chairmen of the citizen redistricting commission; Frasure is a Republican and Andersen a Democrat. Rathdrum GOP Commissioner Lorna Finma nominated Frasure as the GOP co-chair, and Lapwai Democratic Commissioner Julie Kane nominated Andersen as his Democratic counterpart. Democratic commissioner George Moses of Boise said that after reviewing the minutes from the last redistricting commission - which met a decade ago - “It seemed to us that the concept of co-chairs served the commission well. … Continuing that seemed like a good idea.” The vote was unanimous, and Frasure said he'd yield to Andersen to chair the commission's first meeting today; in the future, they'll trade off.
