EMMETT, Idaho — Governor Brad Little is hosting the first "Capital for a Day" event since becoming Governor in his hometown of Emmett, Idaho.

The event will start at 10 a.m. and go until 3 p.m. today at Emmett City Hall. Governor Little will be joined by First Lady Teresa Little.

"I am proud to continue the legacy of holding 'Capital for a Day' events monthly throughout Idaho," Governor Little said. "This important event gives my Cabinet members and me a chance to listen directly to the people of Idaho, and it presents citizens the opportunity to ask questions and offer their suggestions directly to state government leaders."

Officials joining Governor Little include Superintendent of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra and Idaho Department of Health and Welfare Director Dave Jeppesen.

Representatives from the Idaho State Police, Department of Agriculture and Department of Parks and Recreation will be on hand to help answer questions from the community.

Members of U.S. Senator Jim Risch's staff and Congressman Russ Fulcher's staff will also be in attendance.

"Thank you to Emmett Mayor Gordon Petrie, local leadership, and the people of Emmett for hosting the first of what will be many 'Capital for a Day' events throughout the state during my Administration," Governor Little said.
