Candidate for City Council - Seat 1
Bio provided by candidate
Brittney Scigliano grew up on a small farm in Emmett. She was rescuing animals at a young age as her family grew hay and bred cattle. After graduating from Emmett High School, Brittney set off to broaden her horizons and meet new people.
She began studying teaching in 2000 at the University of Idaho before deciding to take some time off school to work in New York and Oregon. She returned to Boise in 2004, where she worked as an esthetician and graduated from Boise State University with a B.S. in Health Science. Along the way, she met and married her husband, Brian Scigliano. Deciding to make Boise their forever home, Brittney and Brian welcomed their daughter, Clara, in 2010.
For the next few years, Brittney worked as a full-time mom. But, as every mother knows, conversations with a toddler only go so far. Brittney felt a strong need to be active in her community. She began volunteering with her neighborhood association in 2013 first as the grant writer and then as the neighborhood treasurer.
The following year, Brittney learned about the “village movement” a movement to help senior citizens age in their homes through community based services. Brittney joined Boise at Home as the vice-chair of its board of directors. The organization was a local non-profit committed to the village movement. There, Brittney recruited members and volunteers, created training programs, and worked alongside some of the brightest and most passionate people in the valley.
In 2017, Brittney was elected as the President of the East End Neighborhood Association. She eagerly sought and found solutions to historic preservation, communication, and planning issues, bringing together city, business and community leaders.
As Brittney has become familiar with city processes, she has seen a gap in the way the city involves Boiseans in decision making. Many Boiseans and decisions affecting them are being made without their input. Brittney decided to run for Boise City Council.
Along with public service, Brittney has a passion for working in her yard and garden; she collects eggs from her chickens and harvests honey from her bees. She and her family ski Bogus Basin in winter and hike the Boise foothills and camp in the Idaho mountains in summer; they love to bike the Greenbelt or walk their [breed], Stella, in their neighborhood. Professionally, Brittney is the new-business development director for a True North Beauty, a luxury skin care company, expanding the brand nationally.
