When Boise mayoral candidates released their campaign finance reports earlier this month, Boise State Public Radio reported that Amber Pence, Boise’s former chief lobbyist, was still employed by the city when she began to work on incumbent Mayor Dave Bieter's campaign.

Boise’s former chief lobbyist was actively directing city staff on projects while simultaneously working for Mayor Dave Bieter’s re-election campaign earlier this summer.
