What Boise's Mayor Wants To Accomplish With The New Climate Action Division
Between the pandemic, the economic fallout of COVID-19 and the revolution for racial justice, several global crises are coming to a head. Another notable crisis? Climate change.
That’s the reasoning behind the city of Boise’s new Climate Action Division, championed by Mayor Lauren McLean.
Joining Idaho Matters today to talk about this new pursuit are Mayor McLean and Director of Public Works Steve Burgos.
"That means making decisions with the future in mind at the same time that I'm having to make tough day by day decisions related to a crisis." - Boise Mayor Lauren McLean
