Boise City Councilor (and counselor) Scot Ludwig announced Wednesday his decision to leave the Boise City Council at the end of his current term.
The move leaves an unexpected opening in the council and to his credit, it looks like the election process will prevail rather than the common practice of resigning and allowing the mayor to make an appointment who then runs as an incumbent.
In his swan song announcement, Ludwig praised his law school classmate, Mayor Dave Bieter, and offered a laundry list of nine things he would like to see happen in Boise.
He is a member of the CCDC urban renewal agency board and can retain the seat even after leaving the council. However, since he is both a lawyer and developer, he may leave to preclude allegations of conflict of interest which have been leveled in the past.
