Rick HogaboamThe Canyon County Board of Commissioners is excited to announce the hiring of Rick Hogaboam as the new Director of Constituent Services. Hogaboam comes to Canyon County after previously serving as the Chief of Staff to Mayor Debbie Kling in Nampa, ID, for nearly four years, where Hogaboam provided supervision of the clerk’s office, code enforcement, citizen support services, various boards and commissions, risk management, and government affairs (among other assigned duties). Hogaboam has a Master of Public Administration degree along with certificates in non-profit management, leadership, and professional writing. Hogaboam previously served on the Nampa City Council.

The commissioners are tasking Hogaboam in this position with public relations, communications, government affairs, and other assigned duties in their commitment to enhance transparency and improve collaborative efforts to provide unified and more cost-efficient services for the citizens of Canyon County.

Hogaboam: “I’m thrilled at the opportunity to serve Canyon County in this new capacity. It’s imperative that the hard-working, tax-paying residents of Canyon County be front and center to the mission and goals of county government. As the county is also made up of various cities and special taxing districts, it’s important to foster healthy communication with our local officials to ensure that we work collaboratively where possible, especially in our mutual support for public safety and safeguarding our quality of life as a county. Canyon County is also fortunate to be filled with so many family-run businesses, agricultural industry, corporations, universities and schools, churches, civic groups, and non-profit organizations – all making a difference in providing goods and services, education, and meeting needs for both neighbor and beyond. My goal is to interface as much as possible and provide an accessible point of contact so that county government is responsive and effective.”
