Burley's Mayor-Elect Looks Forward To New Position


By Jay Michaels

Burley, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Burley's new mayor-elect won't be sworn into office until January 7th. But after working for Boise Cascade for 38 years, and running an insulation business for the last nine years, he feels confident he can put that experience to good use as the mayor of Burley.

Burley's new Mayor-Elect Merlin Smedley says, "I can transfer some of this knowledge that I've learned over my lifetime, that I can transfer into the city. I was born and raised here, so I know a lot about the city."

Smedley explains he's waiting until he's been in office for a while before making any changes so he can learn the ropes first. He points out you can see farther from the inside looking out than you can from the outside looking in.
