Ada County Highway District (ACHD) Commissioner Mitch Jaurena announced today that he is running for election to retain his seat on the ACHD Commission for Sub District 4. Jaurena was appointed to the Commission in June of 2012 after Dave Case was selected by the Governor to fill a vacancy on the Ada County Commission. Jaurena served 21 years in the US Marine Corps and has extensive background in planning, development, environmental compliance and project management both from his military service as well as in private business.
“Ada County, south of the freeway, is the largest and most diverse part of our county in terms of transportation needs,” said Juarena. “Kuna at the southern edge of the county continues to grow and needs a strong advocate at ACHD so that economic development opportunities don’t pass them by because of transportation challenges.
