Idaho House Minority Leader Matt Erpelding is stepping down from the state Legislature.
The Boise Democrat’s resignation is effective the end of the day Friday. In a letter addressed to Governor Brad Little and his fellow legislators, Erpelding called serving as a lawmaker “the most significant professional honor of his life.” He says he is stepping down to advance his professional career, and has accepted a job with the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce.
Erpelding represented District 19, covering the north and northwest part of Boise. (Idaho Democratic Caucus, KTVB)
