Caldwell Mayor Endorses Keri Smith for Canyon County Commissioner
Caldwell’s long-time Mayor Garret Nancolas has officially endorsed Keri Smith for Canyon County Commissioner. Smith announced her candidacy for Canyon County Commissioner in late January. Having already garnered the support of top County leaders, she has established her presence in the race early on, ahead of the May election.
Smith’s campaign focuses on pressing issues for Canyon County, such as fiscally responsible ways to manage growth, business development and economic prosperity.
Mayor Nancolas and Smith have previously partnered on the revitalization of downtown Caldwell, including the construction of Indian Creek Plaza. As the CEO of Destination Caldwell, Smith now oversees the day-to-day operations of the Plaza and is responsible for the Plaza’s many events and successes. Smith also works on the economic development front and actively recruits businesses to the downtown area.
Downtown Caldwell has welcomed over 10 new businesses in the last year and is now a bustling hub of activity for Caldwell residents to enjoy.
“The things that have happened under Keri’s leadership are absolutely amazing. I know that she will take that same vision, dedication, passion and leadership that she has displayed in the City of Caldwell and she will use the same tenacity as a County Commissioner,” says Nancolas in his endorsement statement.
Mayor Nancolas has led Caldwell through the economic downturn of 2008 and ensured the City’s economic recovery, along with reducing crime and managing the rapid growth rate. With years of experience and an exceptional track record, his endorsement of Smith bestows a vote of confidence for the rest of Canyon County.
The election will take place May 19, and Smith is running on the Republican ticket.
