BRR’s Public Policy Committee extends interview invitations to all candidates running for office in Ada and Gem County, and the municipalities and agencies within each county. Candidates interested in being interviewed share their views on housing, private property rights, education, transportation, and other issues affecting the community. From there, the Public Policy Committee, made up of volunteer REALTORS®, provides a list of recommended endorsements which are reviewed and approved by BRR’s Board of Directors. For information regarding these local endorsements, please contact Soren Dorius, BRR Director of Government Affairs, at 208-947-7237 or
