Elaine Clegg

Candidate for City Council - Seat 5

Bio provided by candidate

I‘m excited to run for another term to represent all Boise citizens on the Boise City Council. My knowledge and experience, especially in transportation, land use and growth issues is a valuable asset in guiding the city toward solutions in this time of growth. I have always ensured all voices are in the room and at the table so that together we can find the solutions to protect Boise’s quality of life.


I’ve worked to strengthen our economy by increasing jobs and wages for all Boiseans. I am committed to increasing housing which I’ll pursue through Boise’s “Grow Our Housing” initiative


Boiseans need quality transit services for the 21st century. I will continue my successful initiative for transit funding and improving existing services. I support safe bicycle and pedestrian connections within all neighborhoods. We also have to invest in our existing roadway system to mitigate congestion.


When I was first elected there were severe deficiencies in critical infrastructure. Since then I have led an effort to catch up with the development of over 15 park sites, four branch libraries, six fire stations, three community centers and a police and fire administration building. That work is not complete, next on my list are more amenities in parks, growing the Energize our Neighborhoods program, expanding housing choices, and continued capital improvements.

If I have the honor of being re-elected, I pledge to continue to give my all to that service.
