In an effort to bring state government to rural Idaho residents, Gov. Brad Little has scheduled his latest Capital for a Day event on Thursday in Lemhi County’s Carmen, according to a press release from the governor’s office.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Nancy M. Cummings Research, Extension and Education Center, located at 16 Hot Springs Ranch Road.

Residents are encouraged to ask questions, share opinions and seek answers from state agencies at the event, which is held monthly in a different location.

State officials joining Little include:

  • Department of Environmental Quality Deputy Director Kristin Ryan
  • Department of Fish and Game Director Jim Fredericks
  • Department of Health and Welfare Director Dave Jeppesen
  • Department of Labor Director Jani Revier
  • Department of Lands Director Dustin Miller
  • Department of Water Resources Director Mat Weaver
  • Division of Financial Management Administrator Alex Adams
  • Idaho State Department of Agriculture Deputy Director Lloyd Knight
  • Idaho Transportation Department Director Scott Stokes
  • Office of Species Conservation Administrator Mike Edmondson

“This event will give the good people of Lemhi County a chance to discuss what’s on their minds when it comes to good government and how we can better serve them,” Little said in the press release.

In 2023, Little has also held Capital for a Day events in St. Maries, Malad, Weiser and Gooding, among others.
