Maryanne Jordan plans to serve out the remainder of her Boise City Council term, which ends in 2017.
Jordan said this will be her last term. Idaho Gov. Butch Otter announced Friday that he had appointed Jordan to fill the seat in the Idaho Senate that Elliot Werk was elected to. Werk resigned in February to take a position on the Idaho State Tax Commission.
Jordan was first appointed to the City Council in 2003.
