Just got an email from the Boise Mayor's office. Mayor Bieter is looking for a new council member.
Do you want the job?
According to a news release, whoever is chosen will serve until the next general city election (November 2011), at which time the vacancy shall be filled by election for the balance of the original term, which ends in January 2014.
The reason for the opening is that current Commissioner Vern Bisterfeldt is leaving to join the Ada County Commission. He's running unopposed for the seat and is expected to join the commission in January.
