City Club Of Boise - Idaho's Road To Economic Recovery


Governor Brad Little has reported that Idaho has the most financially solvent budget and strongest economy in the nation. That, paired with vaccine rollout efforts, should position Idahoans for a swift economic recovery from the devastation wreaked by the pandemic on businesses statewide. However, the path to recovery is varied and for some may come too late, but some are poised to rebound quickly, especially with continued support from local and state organizations.


The City Club of Boise welcomed Sean Keithly, City of Boise Economic Development Director, and Tom Kealey, Director of Idaho Department of Commerce, to discuss the tools available to bolster local businesses and support the health of consumers and employees in Idaho and the Treasure Valley.
