Edmunson leaves Legislature for guv’s office

State Rep. Clete Edmunson, R-Council, is resigning from the Legislature in his third term to join Gov. Butch Otter’s staff as a field representative for central Idaho. Edmunson, 41, was vice chairman of the House State Affairs Committee and is a former teacher and coach at New Plymouth High School. He’s also been a strong GOP voice for education in House debates. In his new job, he’ll represent the governor in a 17-county area from Council to Twin Falls.

Otter said, “It’s great to have someone of Clete’s experience and talent joining my team. He knows the issues as well as the political and economic realities of rural Idaho.”
