The best kind of endorsement...

You may have noticed that we're running a different kind of campaign for mayor, one that relies on conversations with everyday people. We haven't pressured every elected official in town for an endorsement, because we know the best endorsements come from voters like you on Election Day.

Front Porch Friday #1

We've been out to thousands of front doors in Boise, listening to people every day. And though I'd love to visit every front door, there's only so many hours in the week! That's why I'm inviting you to my own front porch every Friday morning for a live video.

Boise says it won't proceed with facial recognition at city hall buildings

I’m encouraged by the City of Boise’s decision to back off this controversial technology for now, and I hope that any future discussion will be given the transparency, care and thought it deserves. There's a lot we can learn from other cities on keeping our valued staff safe, and I'm committed to options that don't infringe on our city values and residents' privacy.

Boise Prepares to Add Its Own Words

"This has been about making it clear that all Boise residents should be treated equally and with dignity and respect."

Flashback to 2012, when I was glad to have authored and help advance Boise's gender identity and sexual orientation anti-discrimination ordinance.

Though it is only a small measure in the continual fight for equity, I am proud to stand with our LGBTQ neighbors, that year and every year. 🏳️‍🌈❤️🏳️‍

McLean wants to replace Bieter as Boise's mayor. Bieter says that's 'disappointing.'

"Bieter’s almost 16 years in office make him the longest-serving mayor of Boise, but he says he’s not done...'I’ve said in the past that I needed a food tester because council members want to replace you,” Bieter said."

Gosh, I promise I'm NOT planning to poison anyone's food: I'm simply running to advance a robust, public (and lively!) conversation about our biggest issues as Boise stands at a pivotal crossroads. And I'm proud to be offering voters a choice. That's not a "disappointment" in my book: that's pretty exciting.

Speaking up and stepping out may not be comfortable, but the future of Boise is worth it. I hope you agree.
