Holli Woodings was elected to the Boise City Council in November of 2017 and began her term in January 2018. Holli currently serves as City Council President Pro Tem.
Holli believes that Boise is a great place to raise a family, start or grow a business, and inspire the next generation of young leaders. Keeping our community strong and sustainable is what drives her to give back through public service.
A graduate of Boise State University, she served as a State Representative for District 19 in Idaho’s 72nd Legislature. Prior to that, she helped develop and finance Idaho’s largest wind energy farm, founded Woodings Group, a consultancy specializing in startup energy companies and co-founded the Idaho Clean Energy Association. In 2013, Holli was honored as one of Idaho Business Review’s Women of the Year and is a recipient of the 40 Under 40 Leadership Award.
Holli’s other community service includes serving as Board Chair for Girl Scouts of Silver Sage, a board member of the Boise State Foundation, and on the board of advisors for Idaho Women in Leadership. Her past volunteer service has included a term as president of the North End Neighborhood Association, where she helped craft “Blueprint Boise” and the urban agriculture ordinance as the neighborhood association representative. She has also volunteered for many local organizations including Boise State Venture College, NEW Leadership Idaho, and the 2012 Yes! For Boise Schools campaign.
She lives in East Boise with her husband, Ryan, and their two children. They enjoy walking and biking the Greenbelt and Foothills, using the Library!, paddling at Esther Simplot Park, and enjoying the vibrant arts and cultural events around the city (usually on their bikes).
