Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter announced the appointment of Boise City Council President Maryanne Jordan to fill a vacant Idaho Senate seat resulting from the appointment of Sen. Elliot Werk, D-Boise, to the state Tax Commission.
“I believe Maryanne has proven herself to be a dedicated public servant with a long track record of notable achievement and civic leadership,” said Governor Otter. “I have every confidence that she will continue that laudable legacy as the newest member of the Idaho Legislature.”
“I would like to thank Governor Otter for this appointment,” said Jordan. “Thanks also to former Senator Werk for his long and distinguished service. I am honored and humbled to serve district 17 in the Senate. Jumping in mid-session will be a steep learning curve, but I am confident that I am up to the challenge.”
Jordan has served on the Boise City Council since March 4, 2003. She is a former President of the West Valley Neighborhood Association and spent five years on the Boise City Planning & Zoning Commission.
