Quotes

Leaders recently announced they're targeting Delta for a non-stop flight from Boise to Atlanta. "any route to the east coast is important for the business community because it's the one route we really don't have in our portfolio" says Bill Connors, president and CEO of the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce
"not only does this create heads in beds and lots of economic activity, but when you can attract 1,000-plus scientists or botanists from around the globe and expose them to boise, that is the kind of strategically viable group you want to bring here" Connors said
