Guv Tabs Woman To Deal w/Budget

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter has named a new budget director:  Jani Revier, who served on his congressional staff and has worked as a special projects manager for Congressman Mike Simpson since 2007. Revier, the first woman to hold the position, will start as Otter's Division of Financial Management chief Jan. 2; the appointment is subject to Senate confirmation. Revier, who also previously worked for the U.S. House Agriculture Subcommittee on Forestry, Conservation and Rural Revitalization and as a legislative assistant to then-U.S. Sen. Larry Craig, is the daughter of state Sen. Bert Brackett, R-Rogerson/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Nice to see Butch breaking up the good ol' boys club in his administration, with the occasional female pick. Am I being too hard here?
