As you know, I will have no opponent in the election for Boise City Council. This good fortune is due to your early support and the impact of the strong campaign work we undertook over the summer. Thank you.
Many are now asking what my plans are for the rest of the election cycle. I can say it no more clearly than this – there is still a tremendous amount of important work to do to engage with voters and share my vision for the future of Boise.
The fact that I do not have an opponent offers me a rare opportunity that I intend to maximize.
I didn’t choose to lead to win elections. Short-term political victories are not the ultimate goal. Rather, advancing issues and policies that will have a positive impact on this great City is what really matters.
To that end, I’ll keep talking about these things and working hard to make my vision a reality. Boise’s future is too important to sit idly by just because I don’t have an opponent. In the weeks leading up to the election, I will be talking about Boise’s future – and what it takes to make us a model City in the West, creating a livable community that compares to no other.
My track record speaks for itself. I’ve worked to protect Boise’s foothills. I’ve worked hard to increase funding for schools. I’ve helped make new bus routes to meet neighborhood needs a reality. I’ve encouraged sustainable growth, community economic centers, urban agriculture and strong arts in Boise’s Comprehensive Plan.
But you and I both know there is much more work to be done. I need your continued help and support to accomplish our shared goal of making Boise the best it can be. So, thank you for all that you’ve done so far, and thank you in advance for all that you will do in the future to help us reach our common objectives.
