Yesterday, Idaho voters turned out to the polls to elect 10 pro-conservation city council candidates in local races across the state.
The high number of pro-conservation candidates elected to office in the 2019 local elections signify that Idahoans value conservation and want to see elected officials continue to work towards protecting Idaho’s public lands and clean air and water.
The following 10 endorsed candidates were elected to office, with our endorsed Boise mayoral candidate, Lauren McLean, entering a run-off election (more information to come on that race soon). We’d like to congratulate all of our candidates who came out strong for conservation this year and thank them for running such great campaigns. Of course, thank you to all of our conservation voters out there who supported these candidates and came out strong to the polls. We made our collective voice heard that Idahoans everywhere value protecting Idaho’s air, water, and open space.
We were proud to not only endorse these candidates but provide financial support and staff time to actively help their campaigns win.
Running for any office takes an enormous toll on a candidates’ personal and professional lives, and we’re enormously grateful for the time, effort, and commitment each of our candidates put forth this election cycle. We are looking forward to what our candidates accomplish on behalf of Idaho’s outdoor heritage while in office.
