BOISE — Six candidates hoping to take the helm of Boise’s local government made their case on the Bench Thursday night.

All but one of the candidates in the crowded field spoke to a large crowd at the Hillcrest Library about a range of topics including homelessness, affordable housing, transportation and the possibility of F-35s coming to the City of Trees. Candidates included incumbent Mayor Dave Bieter, Cortney Nielsen, City Council President Lauren McLean, Ada County Highway District Commission President Rebecca Arnold, Adriel Martinez and former Boise Mayor Brent Coles. Wayne Richey was unable to attend.
