Bisterfeldt Will Not Seek Re-election


Political mainstay Vern Bisterfeldt confirmed Friday what many had already guessed - that he won't be seeking another term as Ada County commissioner.

After missing the better part of three weeks of commisssion meetings, Bisterfeldt was spotted moving personal items out of his office at the Ada County Courthouse. Bisterfeldt said he would endorse newcomer David Case, an Ada County Highway District commissioner in the race for his open seat. Case is challenging Commissioner Sharon Ullman, who has been reapportioned into Bisterfeldt's district, which includes southern Ada County, south Meridian and south Boise.
