Elect Elaine Clegg

Elaine Clegg has our vote for Boise City Council. I first met Elaine 12 years ago when we sat down with her over coffee for an oral history about her long involvement in Foothills preservation. I learned she was one of several women who had been working in our neighborhoods since the 1980s. While raising her family, she was involved in the issues that mattered to Boise by serving on the neighborhood association board, various parent and sports associations, and eventually, when the time was right, on City Council. During those years, she worked to preserve Hulls Gulch, save my alma mater Boise High from the wrecking ball, and keep neighborhood streets and sidewalks from too many cars. She deserves another four years and she has our vote.

Jennifer and John Stevens, Boise
