Elect Elaine Clegg

I support and will vote for Elaine Clegg for Boise City Council. She is a trustworthy citizen and has done an outstanding job during her tenure on the council — especially in preserving open space.

Clegg was one of the primary leaders, along with Anne Hausrath and me, in the effort to save Hulls Gulch. I worked closely with her from March 1989 through 1993 and know well her interest in and care about preserving our Boise Foothills. She designed the “Save Hulls Gulch” logo that appeared on fliers, brochures, bumper stickers and the ever-popular yard signs. An Oct. 26 letter to the editor stated, “At no time did Ms. Clegg help ‘run’ or even participate in the planning, execution or implementation of the campaign to Save Hulls Gulch.” I assure you she was there from the beginning and played a major role in that effort.

Clegg is a skilled and experienced public servant who gives many hours of time and energy every day to make our city the best it can be. Vote for Elaine Clegg, and keep one of our best Boise City Council members.

Judy Ouderkirk, Boise
