Today, Boise City councilman Jim Tibbs announced that he will endorse City Council candidate David Litster to fill the seat Tibbs is leaving at the end of the year.
“The voters have a clear choice on November 3. Dave Litster’s life experience and commitment to holding the line on spending make it easy for me to throw my full support behind him,” Tibbs stated in a press release.
Tibbs, a vetern of the Boise Police Department for 34 years, is completing a four-year term on city council. His position, seat number four, is now contested between Litster, and TJ Thomson.
“Boise is at a critical juncture, and in Dave we will have both an innovator and a watch dog for the taxpayers. With his business experience, community involvement, and relationships with government leaders, Dave Litster is in a unique position to move Boise forward,” Tibbs continued in his statement.
Thomson has received endorsements from Rep. Walt Minnick, the Boise Fire Fighters union, as well as Mayor Dave Bieter.
