Otter sending more agency heads packing

Gov.-elect Butch Otter has notified three more current state agency heads that they won’t be staying on for his administration, meaning they’ll be leaving their jobs at the end of this month: Pam Ahrens, Department of Administration; Carolyn Terteling-Payne, Human Resources; and Rayola Jacobson, Occupational Licenses Bureau. Also, Idaho State Police Director Dan Charboneau and Public Utilities Commissioner Dennis Hansen have elected to retire at the end of the year, leaving additional posts for Otter to fill. Last week, Otter notified three other agency heads he wouldn’t be keeping them on – Pat Takasugi, Agriculture; Karl Dreher, Water Resources; and Roger Simmons, Lottery Commission.
