House honors Manning on his retirement

Longtime state official Darrell Manning was honored on his retirement today with passage of HCR 46 in the House, “honoring and commending” him for his service to the state. The resolution was co-sponsored by Reps. Max Black, R-Boise; Marv Hagedorn, R-Meridian; and Wendy Jaquet, D-Ketchum, who called Manning a mentor. Rep. JoAn Wood, R-Rigby, said, “We will probably never have another Darrell Manning, and Idaho is certainly better because of him.”

Manning is a decorated Air Force veteran; is a former five-term Democratic state lawmaker; was named the first director of the Idaho Transportation Department in 1974, where he served until 1985; is the former adjutant general of the Idaho National Guard; a state agency head under eight Idaho governors; and most recently the chairman of the Idaho Transportation Board.
