With rules for anti COVID-19 masks, new police and fire chiefs, and budgeting taking center stage, it takes the scrutiny of a GUARDIAN reader to notice Mayor Lauren McLean has placed her own stamp on the “Boise Brand.”
We are no longer seeking to be the “Most Livable City In The Country.” Today Boise’s vision is “Creating a City For Everyone.” That tagline now shows on official e-mail signature blocks from City Hall.
From the city website:
Not to be picky, but it appears they already botched the mission of “embracing our community in the decision-making process.” After interviewing fire chief candidates and a public town hall meeting, the good mayor found her own chief, gave no prior notice to the public and a mere 20 minutes to the city council before announcing her unilateral decision. The community was certainly not “embraced.”
