The views expressed on this website are the personal thoughts and views of Jeff Hough
and do not reflect an official position of the Bannock County Commissioners.

Bannock County is a great place to live and raise a family. Its future is bright and the county is in a good position to take advantage of opportunity.

I believe we can do better.

Bannock County is set for major growth in the upcoming years. I believe we should be proactive in getting ready for that growth. We need to look for ways to keep property taxes in check while providing necessary services. We need creativity and a spirit of cooperation.

I believe I can help with that.

Meet Commissioner Jeff Hough

Commissioner Jeff Hough Sitting on Stairs

Raised in McCammon, Jeff grew up living the rural lifestyle with a father who owned and operated a small business for nearly 50 years. After graduating from Marsh Valley High School he attended ISU where he earned a BA in Finance which allowed him to work for the JR Simplot Company, US Robotics, and 3 Com as a financial analyst.

Jeff brings a varied business background to the Commissioner’s office. He spent several years working for Idaho State University in the Workforce Training Department. Additionally, he spent time as the regional Economic Developer in the Magic Valley which is where he gained a passion for economic development.

Prior to running for office, he owned and operated his own small business doing digital marketing. As part of that business, he was able to help numerous candidates get elected to political office in Idaho. He was appointed to serve as County Commissioner in July 2020 and has enjoyed learning about politics from the inside.

Jeff enjoys Mountain Biking and is the Race Director for the annual Pocatello Fall Ultra, a 100k mountain bike race. He referees high school football and basketball and lifts weights. He and his wife Debbie have been married for 33 years and have 4 kids and 5 grandkids.

His favorite quote is from Walt Whitman and is, “Be curious, not judgemental.”
