Boise – Lauren McLean announced today that both the Ada County Realtors and Conservation Voters for Idaho have endorsed her candidacy, joining other institutions including the Boise Firefighters, NW Carpenters, and Professional Firefighters of Idaho in recognizing her leadership.
In her full term on City Council, McLean pledges to focus on policies that will ultimately create economic opportunity in Boise. “I’m particularly proud of these endorsements because I strongly believe that quality of life, well-funded schools, and vibrant neighborhoods go hand in hand with economic development and a growing city. You can’t have one without the other, and the record I’ve established in protecting our foothills, strengthening neighborhoods and calling for transportation funding while helping this City grow and create economic opportunity is recognized by these dual endorsements.”
McLean is most notable for her involvement in the successful Boise Foothills Open Space Campaign. Prior to her appointment to the Council, she served for a decade on the Boise Parks Commission and Planning and Zoning Commission, helping to establish new parks, map areas for future commercial centers, and make development decisions that reflect the importance of connectivity between residences, jobs, schools, and stores.
Lee Flinn of Conservation Voters for Idaho said in announcing her endorsement, “Boise residents are fortunate to have Lauren McLean. McLean has a proven track record advocating for conservation issues, and is well known for her leadership in protecting open space in the Boise foothills.”
