Jackie Aymon is an Idaho native, born in Boise, who graduated from Capital High. She lives in McCall and is currently a member of city council. Her friends will testify that Ms. Aymon works hard to make McCall a better place to live and work for all its citizens. She brings her broad life experiences to her work on the McCall City Council.
After graduating from the University of Washington in Physical Education Jackie became the head coach for the women’s gymnastics team at Boise State University from 1980-87. She then moved to Australia to work with gymnasts on an international competitive level. Returning to the states in 1993 she attended the Physician Assistant Program at Idaho State University and has been working ever since in internal medicine as a licensed physician assistant. Since 2006 she has worked at the McCall Medical Clinic.
Ms. Aymon has been active in Democratic politics, serving as Vice Chair and Chair of the Valley County Democrats. Last year she took on another challenge, accepting an appointment as a City of McCall Council person. Coming from Democratic roots in a very red state, Jackie hopes that citizens can see what a positive force a progressive voice can bring to the community. She is proud of her accomplishments this year working with a diverse council. With Jackie on the council they have settled two outstanding law suits and had very a successful centennial celebration of the founding of the city. “I want to make McCall, Idaho’s number one mountain town,” says Jackie. This “blue girl in a red state” has made a difference in people’s lives.
