Vacated Nampa City Council Seat to Remain Open Ahead of November Election

At the Nampa City Council meeting last night, former Councilman Jacob Bower was honored for his public service to the community. The Bower family recently made the decision to move out of Nampa and Bower resigned the elected position he has held since January 2020.  

Typically, an open city council seat is filled through a mayoral appointment and council confirmation. Due to the close proximity to the November election and the time needed to find a qualified representative, it was Mayor Kling’s recommendation to leave the vacated seat open. The recommendation was discussed with council and ended with a general consensus to leave the seat open.

Mayor Debbie Kling said, “It is my recommendation we let the citizens of Nampa choose who will represent them on council in the November election. We have dedicated city council members who will continue to represent the citizens of Nampa well during this time.”

For the first time in Nampa's history, on November 7, 2023, residents will only vote for council members who live in their district as part of Idaho Code section 50-707A. Residents in districts 2, 4 and 6 will vote in the November 2023 election and districts 1, 3 and 5 will vote in the November 2025 election.
