November 2017 Local Election Results

Election results are in! Of the 14 city council candidates BRR endorsed, 10 were successful in their respective races. Thanks to your RPAC investments, BRR’s endorsements went a long way in helping elect officials who value access to homeownership and private property rights.

BRR would like to recognize each of these candidates for the time, money, and energy spent on their well-run campaigns. This was a tough election year, and we were fortunate to have so many well-qualified candidates seeking the opportunity to serve our communities.

“Each election cycle we have the privilege of giving our association and industry a voice on key issues and political races,” said Phil Mount, Chair of the Political Affairs Committee.  “This year was no different from previous years, where a committee of volunteers with diverse backgrounds and political party affiliations join together as the REALTOR® Party to determine the best course of action for endorsements.”

Speaking to the decision-making process, Boise Regional REALTORS® President Carey Farmer stated, “We are proud of the thoughtful deliberation and selection process, and also thankful for the time spent by our members to determine who the REALTOR® Party should support this election.  Committee members took time away from their businesses and family, to ensure our industry continues to have a voice in the community’s future.”
