In this episode of Words With Wayne, CM Company takes us on a tour of the new Owyhee High School wrapping up in Meridian. This much-needed project has been worked on by many different Idaho AGC members. We'll also touch base with Idaho AGC staff in Las Vegas and Eastern Idaho, and meet the newest addition to the Idaho AGC Board of Directors: Aaron Johnson with Bateman-Hall.
Ahead of next year’s statewide election, the Idaho AGC Board of Directors announced at its May 20th meeting that the association has endorsed Brad Little in his race for re-election as Idaho’s Governor.
“Idaho is fortunate to have had Brad Little at its helm during these past two years,” stated Idaho AGC President Jessee Rosin of Boise-based Mountain Companies. “Idaho’s economy, and its construction industry, has continued to thrive despite the pandemic and all the economic troubles associated with it. Governor Little deserves a lot of credit for this success and has earned another term.”
