Former Ada County Commissioner Reflects On Time In Office

Diana Lachiondo, Facebook

Former Ada County Commissioner Diana Lachiondo lost her bid for re-election this fall, after taking controversial positions in her role on the Central District Health Board. Her critics said she was overreacting in her support for COVID-19 restrictions, while her supporters say she has become a victim of a hyper-partisan election where public health had become politicized. 

Our Morning Edition host George Prentice spoke with Lachiondo about her time in office during a hyper-partisan time in the U.S. — and in Idaho.
