It's not clear why, but Gov. Butch Otter, a Republican, continues to have a Democrat serve as chairman Idaho State Tax Commission.
In February, Otter tabbed Democratic Commissioner David Langhorst as interim chairman, replacing GOP Commission Chairman Bob Geddes. Geddes, a former senator, resigned after about a year on the job. Langhorst was a senator from Northwest Boise before joining the commission.
On July 12, Otter named former House GOP Caucus Chairman Ken Roberts of Donnelly to the Geddes vacancy, but did not make an announcement on the chairmanship.
I asked Otter Thursday about filling the chairmanship permanently. He said he wasn't ready to make an announcement and didn't know when he'd pull the trigger.
He added that he'd break the news "when I decide."
The other two commissioners on the four-person panel are Republican Rich Jackson of Emmett and Democrat Tom Katsilometes of Meridian.
