Boise Mayor Draws Mixed Reactions After Re-Election Announcement
If you recall Boise's last mayoral race, you may remember that it wasn't a cake-walk like it had been in years past. For several years, incumbent candidate Dave Bieter had been comfortably sitting in the Office of Mayor at City Hall--as Boise boomed into the fastest growing city in America.
Many didn't expect Lauren McLean, another Democrat, to challenge Bieter--but she did and after a contentious race and even a runoff election--she won: dominantly.
It's already time to start discussing city leadership once again and Mayor Lauren McLean has just this week announced her candidacy.

There's no telling what the Mayoral landscape might look like this year--could a challenger from McLean's own party arise? Republican contenders are sure to begin throwing their hats into the ring. We will continue to keep you updated.
