New Councilmembers Take Oath of Office


Pocatello’s three newest City councilmembers have taken their seats behind the dais.

At Thursday’s City Council meeting, Rick Cheatum, Linda Leeuwrik, and Heidi Adamson received the oath of office by City Clerk Ruth Whitworth.

“I am looking forward to building a personal working relationship with each of the other Councilmembers and the Mayor so that together we can address Pocatello’s future,” said Councilman Rick Cheatum.

"I'm excited to work together with the other Councilmembers, the Mayor, the City staff, and the people of Pocatello on projects both big and small that will make our city an even better place to live,” said Councilwoman Linda Leeuwrik. “I look forward to focusing on the everyday business, including managing our budget, services, and resources; building better relationships, particularly with the University, local labor, and the Tribes; and working on the responsible development of our community."

“I am excited to have the continued opportunity to promote Pocatello,” said Councilwoman Heidi Adamson. “I look forward to working with other officials at the City as well as Chubbuck and Bannock County to enhance our community.”

Following their swearing in, Jim Johnston was elected Council President. The Council President serves as the head of the City Council and helps represent the City at various events. The Council President also serves as Acting Mayor when the Mayor is unavailable.
