State Sen. Elliot Werk has decided against a race at the city level in Boise.
“I will not be running for a seat on the Boise City Council,” Werk said in an email to the Statesman’s Dan Popkey. “I appreciate the appeals and the support that I received as I evaluated my decision. However, I’d like to focus on my job in the Senate, on getting more progressives elected to the legislature, and on working to strengthen ethics in Idaho state government, craft good energy policy, and restore public education.
“I would not rule out a run for city office in the future. But for right now the best decision for myself and my family is to focus on my work in the Senate.”
