Cronin seeks Boise School Board seat

Former state Rep. Brian Cronin — a leading opponent of Propositions 1, 2 and 3 — has filed for an open two-year seat on the Boise School Board.

Cronin, a Boise Democrat, served in the Legislature from 2008 to 2012. He did not run in 2012 — but during that election year, he was a consultant and a public spokesman for the campaign to defeat Propositions 1, 2 and 3.

Cronin now works in the Boise office of Strategies 360, a public affairs firm. Also running for the two-year seat is Travis Jones, executive director of the Idaho Grain Producers Association. Jones is a former staffer for Republican Sen. Larry Craig.
