Idaho State Controller Brandon D. Woolf kicked off his election bid for the 2014 general election in Preston on Thursday evening at a reception in the Preston City Park.
The Preston native and 1991 graduate of Preston High School was appointed interim Controller by Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter on July 3, 2012. The Governor made the appointment permanent last October. He was confirmed by the Idaho Senate this past January.
Woolf replaced Donna Jones, who was injured in an automobile accident in May, 2012.
“It’s great to come back to my hometown to kick of my campaign. Idaho does have a primary next May and I’m starting to make the rounds for my election,” he said. “My parents and those of my wife are from Franklin County, so it’s nice to return to my roots to get things started.”
Woolf said the state controller is the state’s fiscal officer.
