Tuolumne, CA – Former Tuolumne County Supervisor Teri Murrison will lead the Idaho Soil and Water Conservation Commission.
Murrison will step into the new role effective June 1st and will work out of an office in Boise. SWC Chairman Bill Flory states, “The Soil and Water Conservation Commission believes that Ms. Murrison’s background will serve her well in supporting our mission and commitment to natural resource conservation. Teri has experience and perspective from the local and state levels to lead the Commission and continue the relationships with all of our conservation partners.”
The SWC provides support and services to Idaho’s 50 Soil Conservation Districts. Murrison will be responsible for providing leadership and direction for Commission staff, budgets and programs.
Murrison did not seek reelection to her District 3 Supervisorial seat last year, and instead made a run at the 25th District Assembly seat.
Murrison wrote about the move on her website, saying that that Idaho has incredible natural resources, wonderful people and a strong agricultural industry. “While we’re torn about leaving, it’s an irresistible combination,” stated Murrison. She also added that she will miss Tuolumne County.
