BOISE, Idaho – Pastor Tim Remington was appointment to the Idaho House of Representatives by Governor Brad Little on Tuesday.

Remington, who lives in Coeur d’Alene, will fill the seat for Legislative District 2B, which was recently vacated by Representative John Green. Green was expelled from the House a day after he was convicted of conspiring to defraud the U.S. government.

Remington currently serves as the pastor of the Altar Church and director of Good Samaritan Rehabilitation, a faith-based addiction recovery program.

Those who do not recognize Remington by name may remember him as the North Idaho pastor who survived being shot six times outside of his church in 2016.

“I’m a preacher and will stay a preacher,” Remington said. “What an honor to service this state.”

Remington’s term began Tuesday and will continue until the term of office expires following the next general election.

“Pastor Remington’s experience will bring a valuable perspective to the Idaho Legislature,” Little said. “I greatly appreciate all of the District 2 applicants for their willingness to serve in this position.”
