The unofficial elections results are in for a vote that took place throughout the Treasure Valley Tuesday, determining who would fill the two available seats on the board of the Greater Boise Auditorium District, or GBAD.

There were four candidates in the race competing for the two open seats. Kristin Muchow secured a spot, receiving 40% of the votes, and incumbent Hy Kloc followed close behind, with 38% of the votes. The other two candidates, Scott Mecham and incumbent Judy Peavey-Derr did not win seats.

An Idaho Democratic lawmaker's resolution honoring immigrants and refugees faced opposition from a legislative panel after Republican members questioned the timeliness of such praise.

Rep. Hy Kloc, of Boise, says his resolution introduced Thursday is intended to recognize the ongoing contributions of immigrants and refugees in Idaho.

Kloc, who was born in a refugee camp in Germany and whose parents were Holocaust survivors, said he came to the United States as a refugee in 1949. Last year, he backed a resolution honoring the 130th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty.
