Former Boise Mayor Dave Bieter is no longer a public figure.
Bieter resigned his commission on the board of the Capital City Development Corp. yesterday. Typically, the mayor’s office handles communication about resignations or appointments to the board. But Bieter sent a letter to CCDC Executive Director John Brunelle resigning “effective immediately.” Brunelle then provided the letter to Mayor Lauren McLean’s office.
“It has been very gratifying to see the progress CCDC has made over the last ten years,” Bieter wrote. “I believe CCDC has made significant strides in being a more nimble, collaborative and effective organization. For that, the many members of the board over that time, and the staff, should all be applauded.”
Bieter’s term on the panel, which oversees urban renewal in Boise, was set to expire in mid-October. His departure comes just months shy of the end of his term. He didn’t say in his letter why he was resigning.
