Press-Tribune: Caldwell Council Chooses Biggers To Take Open Seat


The second time was the charm for Terrence Biggers in his effort to be seated on the Caldwell City Council.

This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that the council approved the 55-year-old Biggers Monday night to take the open seat of David Clark, who resigned in January to move to Texas.

The Press-Tribune reports that Biggers is a retired Air Force pilot and moved to Idaho in 2004. He currently owns the Treasure Valley Notary. Biggers had previously thrown his hat into the ring for an earlier open-seat opportunity.

Biggers was one of two finalists for the job, along with 29-year-old Carlos Soriano, a former intern for Boise Mayor Dave Bieter.

“As a business owner, I understand the downturn, and businesses are struggling,” Biggers said Monday, according to the Press-Tribune. “In turn, that doesn’t help the government, and in turn, that doesn’t help the city. … If we can improve the business environment here, it will raise the tax base.”
