LEADERSHIP

Brian Harm (1).jpg
CANYON COUNTY CHAIR
Brian Harm

In 1973, I had the opportunity to cross into East Berlin before the wall fell. The meaning of freedom came into sharp focus that day and I remember it still.  My story is a simple one; I am a grateful Idahoan, lucky enough to have marred my lovely wife Lisa of 26 years. I served in the US Army, graduated from Boise State University on the GI Bill and this led to a 40+ year career in media and marketing. Like you, I now seek to maintain the freedom our forebears died to achieve.
