Boise Mayor Emphasizes City Must Be ‘For Everyone’
It doesn't matter who you are these days, there's no escaping politics. Even if you were to live under the theoretical "rock"--or in a literal sense--people have a lot to say about politics and it often feels as though Idaho is in the center of it. Most people in this country couldn't even tell you where Idaho is on a map. Or do we mean Iowa? You get the point. It's Idaho's conservative policies and often very vocal and "abnormal" politicians that lead to so many nation headline and new story appearances, however.
At the end of the day, Democrat, Republican, or anything in between--we can all agree (or at least most of us can, anyway) that the rhetoric from all sides is a little much and politics aren't what they once were.
Just today, the Mayor of Boise spoke out to her constituents in Boise with a plea to be kind, to accept others, and to keep Boise, Idaho a place 'for everyone'. It also happens to be International Transgender Day of Visibility.
In a time where members of our community who are transgender are being attacked, aggressively, from many different groups--perhaps we could all use a sweeping reminder that a little kindness goes a long way. Mayor McLean isn't asking for anything other than a little kindness--oh, to live by the Golden Rule.
