(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced the appointment today of Dave Case of Meridian to fill the District 3 Ada County Commission vacancy left by the May 4 resignation of Vern Bisterfeldt.

            “I’m extremely grateful to the Governor for having the confidence in me to appoint me to this position,” said Case, who on May 15 defeated incumbent Commissioner Sharon Ullman for the Republican nomination in District 3. He will face Democrat Thomas Howell and independent Jon Howard in the November election.

            Case, who will vacate a seat on the Ada County Highway District Commission to become a county commissioner, was among three nominees whose names were submitted to the Governor to succeed Bisterfeldt. The others were Dan Dunham and Gordon Browning.

            Case is married with two children and earned a bachelor’s degree from Boise State University. In addition to the Ada County Highway District Commission, he is a former Idaho State Police trooper and a former hearing officer for the Idaho Commission of Pardons and Parole. He also served on the Kuna School Board.
