Nelson to retire from Associated Taxpayers of Idaho in July

Randy Nelson, president of Associated Taxpayers of Idaho, will retire at the end of July after 22 years with the group. ATI is setting up a transition committee to head its search for a new president. The business-funded group does research on tax issues, offers informational testimony on tax-related legislation, and  sponsors a well-attended annual conference that's become a traditional warmup for Idaho's legislative session each year. Before joining ATI, Nelson worked for 13 years as transportation and principal planner for what's now called the Community Planning Association, or COMPASS, in Ada County.

"Randy is largely responsible for making ATI what it is today," said the group's board chairman, Gene Marchioro. "I wish him all the best in this new chapter of his life.” ATI is a non-profit, 501c4 organization first formed in 1946.
