Amber Pence was Boise Mayor Dave Bieter’s intergovernmental affairs aide before she left his office to work on his reelection campaign. 

Last October, Boise State Public Radio reporter James Dawson found she had been directing city staff after she left Bieter’s office at the end of May. Then, we learned from BoiseDev reporter Don Day that Pence was re-hired to work in Bieter's office after he lost the runoff. 


We talk with Day to learn about a records request he made which shows taxpayers paid more than $40,000 for 23 days of work.
