Boise is at its best when we work together to solve our most pressing needs and maintain and enhance the quality of life we’ve become known for. To me, that means we must preserve our unique neighborhoods, promote cultural diversity, support development of affordable housing, expand education for preschoolers, and continue to lead the state for excellence in public safety, parks and recreational opportunities.
Build our economy
Boise must lead our state and region as the best place to start and grow a business. My experience as an entrepreneur and working with other startups has taught me to dream big and think strategically about how best to draw the types of businesses that pay employees well above the median income for the area. Public-private partnerships are at the core of many of Boise’s transformative investments, and I believe in open communication with business partners so we continue to build on Boise’s strengths as one of the nation’s top places to live, work and visit.
Follow Blueprint Boise, the 20-year planning and growth guide I helped create as a member of my neighborhood leadership team. It’s a road map for strengthening our neighborhoods, enhancing transportation options, preserving open and green space, and encouraging efficient, sustainable and appropriate development that maintains quality of life while leveraging infrastructure.
