Garden City – Sara Baker will be president of the Ada County Highway District for 2013, elected unanimously by her colleagues at Wednesday’s Commission meeting.
Baker Elected ACHD President for 2013
Before the meeting, Baker and Commissioner Rebecca Arnold were sworn into office, along with newly elected Commissioner Jim Hansen. Baker and Arnold were re-elected in November.
The president is chosen annually to lead the District and to set the Commission meeting agenda, among other duties. Baker, a former Boise City Council member, was elected to the ACHD Commission in 2008. She lives on the Boise Bench and represents Sub-District 5, central and northwest Ada County.
In addition to naming the president, Commissioners also elected John Franden as vice present. Franden, who was originally elected in 2002, will preside over meetings and serve as president in Baker’s absence.
