The filing period for Ada County candidates to run in the May primary election closed Friday with some surprises and some perennial names.
Commish Rick Visser surprised county officials with an unforeseen retirement message:
“After 40 years of public service in Ada County which includes work with the county, the State of Idaho and the federal government, I will be retiring this month. My last day of work will be March 31st.
It has been an honor to serve the citizens of Ada County and a great privilege to have worked with you all – the leadership team of Ada County!
A list of candidates:
County Commissioner, District 1
