Selling the Governor's mansion
“I intend to introduce legislation to sell the governor’s mansion if I am re-elected,” said Burgoyne in an Oct. 28 debate with Perez.
This hilltop home boasts a nice view of Boise and was valued at $2.8 million Simplot gave it to the state. It is unused at this time.
The fund paying for upkeep of the house – mowing, watering, and electricity – is running out. The fund, money saved from the sale of a previous governor’s mansion, began with $1.5 million in the coffers, but has since dwindled to a little more than $1 million, according to reports.
Robert Geddes said that anyone working on legislation to sell the mansion should be respectful to the Simplot family. “Is it an option to sell it?” asked Geddes.
“Yes, I think that’s an option, but we need to extend courtesy to the Simplot family and ask them about it. Maybe even offer it back to them,” said Geddes.
