Geddes Resigns From Tax Commission

Idaho State Tax Commission Chairman Bob Geddes resigned his state post this week and will return to Monsanto, his former employer. Geddes is the former Senate president pro tem who was chosen by Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter in January 2011 to help restore the State Tax Commission's reputation. That's after its former chairman, Royce Chigbrow, resigned amid complaints he was helping family and friends and inappropriately handling taxpayer money. Geddes didn't immediately return a phone call. Otter's office said Thursday the 56-year-old Geddes submitted his resignation letter Feb. 7, with his last day of work on Feb. 21/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: On Twitter, Dustin Hurst/Idaho Reporter offers a guess that House Speaker Lawerence Denney would be a solid choice to replace Geddes on Idaho Tax Commission. What do you think?
