Broadsword Leaving Commish Job

Orginally posted 5:14 p.m. Tuesday

Less than a month after taking her oath of office, Bonner County Commissioner Joyce Broadsword announced Tuesday she is resigning. The Republican District 1 commissioner is stepping down to take a job as regional director of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare for northern Idaho. Broadsword's resignation, which takes effect on Feb. 28, is not without some regret. Broadsword campaigned on bringing positive changes to the Bonner County Administration Building, including boosting flagging morale in some departments. "I had concerns about leaving my post on the Commission, but it became clear I could do more to help in northern Idaho by accepting the job as your new Region 1 Director - and that's why I got into public service in the first place," Broadsword said in a written statement announcing her resignation/Keith Kinnaird, Bonner County Bee.

Question: Should Broadsword have left her Bonner County job so quickly?
