In a unanimous vote by its statewide Board of Directors, the Idaho Associated General Contractors (AGC) endorsed the candidacy of Rebecca Arnold and Kara Veit in this year’s November election. Both are running for four‐year terms on the Commission governing the Ada County Highway District (ACHD) – Idaho’s largest and only countywide highway authority.
