After Boise Mayoral Results Prompt A Runoff, A Conversation With Lauren McLean

Lauren McLean

In a surprising turn of events, incumbent Boise Mayor Dave Bieter took just 30% of the vote in Tuesday's election, while City Council President Lauren McLean took 46%. Since neither gained a majority, Boise is preparing for its first mayoral runoff on December 3. We talk with McLean to find out what her next steps will be. 

Note: Idaho Matters reached out to Mayor Bieter for an interview. He declined our initial request but says he will join the show next week.
