Boise Mayor-Elect Lauren McLean Talks To Morning Edition Hours After Historic Victory
Fresh from her victory in a runoff election which makes her Boise's first woman to be elected mayor, Lauren McLean visited with Morning Edition host George Prentice Wednesday morning.
With all 88 Boise precincts counted, McLean won 65.5% of the vote to incumbent Mayor Dave Bieter's 34.5 %. Bieter failed to win a single precinct.
“We knew that our supporters around the city were so excited to vote for a second time and that’s what we saw right away. We were cautiously optimistic.”
