City Council Appointments

Applications are now closed.

Mayor McLean is accepting applications from candidates interested in being considered for an appointment to fill out the terms of two council vacancies. Candidates with a passion for Boise, a strong record of civic engagement and a willingness to serve are encouraged to apply.

Apply for Consideration

Those interested in being considered for one of the seats must submit the following information to

  • Applicant’s legal name
  • Physical address and length of residency at that address
  • Which seat the candidate wants to be considered for (At-large and/or District 3)
  • Letter of interest outlining the perspective the applicant would bring to the council, the reasons for wanting to serve the public, and the impact they hope to make as a Boise city council member
  • Current resume outlining both professional and civic experience
  • Contact information for three (3) references who are prepared to speak to the candidate’s perspective and/or experience

Application information must be submitted directly by the applicant, preferably in a single PDF document. Interest expressed or information provided outside of this process will not be considered a formal application. Candidate applications are subject to the public records act.

Candidates seeking an appointment to District 3 must be qualified electors in the district; candidates seeking an appointment to the at-large seat must be qualified electors in city limits. Both appointments will fill out the remainder of the terms. All six council seats will be up for election in November.
