State Controller Resigns
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter has appointed Brandon Woolf as the state’s new Controller. Woolf was named temporary controller in July after Donna Jones was badly injured in a car crash. Otter said at the time that Woolf would serve until the 73-year-old Jones returned to her job. Monday morning, Otter announced during a press conference that Jones had resigned from the position, and he named Woolf permanently to the post. His appointment is subject to approval by the Idaho Senate.
