“I’ve said all along that this campaign – whether it be knocking on doors, raising money, or communicating with voters – is about advancing issues that will have an impact on this city. My fundraising support demonstrates that diverse people agree with my vision, value my track record, and trust my leadership,” said Lauren McLean.
Despite having no opponent, McLean raised just shy of $40,000 and reported just over $23,000 cash on hand at the close of the first reporting cycle. ”I am thankful for the outpouring of support I received after being named to the Council and announcing my candidacy for a four year term. I look forward to working together with the Mayor, Council and residents across this city on policies and initiatives that will make Boise a model City in the West.”
Echoing her commitment to a campaign that focuses on issues and Boise’s future, McLean’s finance report shows bi-partisan and diverse support from throughout the city.
