CHAIRMAN, DISTRICT 2
Bill Clayton’s family emigrated to Idaho in 1903, from Spain’s Basque country. Bill managed to spend every summer of his youth working on his grandfather’s ranch here in Idaho.
Bill earned a degree in business, with an emphasis on agricultural economics, from the University of California Berkeley. Following college, Bill served his country as a Marine Corps Captain in Vietnam, where he flew Huey gunships.
Following Vietnam, Bill started working in the business of commercial real estate in California. Longing for the rural Idaho he knew as a young man, in 1973, Bill returned to Idaho, first raising Herefords. In 1979, he started a local tree farm, which today ships high quality trees all across the United States.
Bill is the father of three fine boys and the proud grandfather of seven more youngsters. Bill has been active on the Board of the Boise River Flood Control District #10, since 1989.
