BOISE – September 11, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced the appointments today of Derick Attebury of Idaho Falls and Daniel Blanco of Moscow to the seven-member Idaho Fish and Game Commission.
Attebury succeeds Kenneth Anderson of Rigby and Blanco succeeds Fred Trevey of Lewiston, whose terms expired. Both Attebury and Blanco will serve four-year terms. Their appointments are subject to confirmation by the Idaho Senate when the Legislature reconvenes in January.
Attebury, an irrigation company operations manager and avid hunter and fisherman, will represent the Idaho Department of Fish and Game’s Upper Snake Region 6 on the commission. The area includes Butte, Jefferson, Madison, Teton, Fremont, Clark, Bonneville and parts of Lemhi, Custer and Bingham counties.
Blanco, a tent salesman and former director of Career Services for the University of Idaho, has a master’s degree in public administration emphasizing environmental management from the University of South Dakota. He will represent Fish and Game’s Clearwater Region 2, which includes Latah, Clearwater and Lewis counties, as well as most of Idaho County and parts of Benewah and Shoshone counties.
“It’s always gratifying when engaged and concerned citizens step up to take on the responsibilities of managing our precious public resources. Few duties are more important to Idahoans, and few positions in State government are more demanding,” Governor Otter said. “Derick and Daniel are committed to helping advance Fish and Game’s mission of preserving, protecting, perpetuating and managing Idaho’s wildlife for future generations of sportsmen.”
