• We're Listening

      11 January 2019

    • As we usher in 2019, I want to take a moment to let you know that we are listening! I recently held a series of Listening Tours at my home. The goal of the tours is not only to meet new people, but to hear concerns and/or highlights about Meridian from different stakeholders representing different areas across Meridian. The 25 residents who participated, included local business owners, PTA/PTO presidents, neighborhood representatives, district chairs for political parties, and leaders of service groups.

    • Honoring Mayor Corrie

      21 December 2018

    • This week we will gather to celebrate the life of one of the City’s former leaders, Mayor Robert ‘Bob’ Corrie. Mayor Corrie passed away on Monday, December 10 at the age of 82, just before his 61st wedding anniversary with his wife, Jeri. He served our city for more than a decade, first as a city councilman, then as Mayor from 1996-2004, and he later served as a member of the Solid Waste Advisory Commission.

    • 'Tis the Season for Giving

      03 December 2018

    • I love this time of year because there’s a kindness and giving spirit in the air and people are committed to helping others enjoy the holidays. For this reason, I’m excited to tell you about a new addition this year at city hall during the holiday season.  Aside from our large Christmas tree in the main lobby, this year we also have a smaller “flocked” tree – A Salvation Army Angel Tree. Anyone is welcome to choose from a variety of wish tags and purchase a toy for a local child in need. Then deliver the unwrapped to the Salvation Army location in Boise at 4308 W. State Street or to the Parks and Recreation Department at Meridian City Hall by Thursday, December 13. We are more than happy to be able to host an angel tree – encouraging neighbor helping neighbor - and look forward to seeing more families enjoy this Christmas in our community.

    • For those who know me well, the holidays are a very special time of year. It all begins with Thanksgiving - when families and friends come together to celebrate with one another.  Whether you are gathering in Meridian or traveling to another location, I wanted to take a moment to encourage you and your family to consider the plentiful blessings we have as a community.

    • Election Day is Here!

      02 November 2018

    • The Ada County Elections office says early voting numbers are up and that is very apparent by the number of people we saw here at Meridian City Hall over the past two weeks. I enjoy seeing so many people take advantage of early voting, whether here at city hall, other locations or via the mobile voting options. Every election is important and your voice does matter!

    • What's an "Unplugged" Town Hall?

      19 October 2018

    • Every year we try to host at least one “Unplugged” Town Hall, when we ask our citizens to drive the agenda for the evening. I think it’s incredibly important to hear from you and discuss what is on your minds and hearts. I encourage you to join us on Wednesday, October 24, from 6:30pm – 8pm at Lakeview Golf Club. We’ll have a representative on hand from each department, so if you have parks, police, public works, community development, fire or even finance questions – we’ll be ready to discuss those with you. It’s a great time to connect with us and learn more information about your community. You can send your questions ahead of the event to Jodi St-Martin, jst-martin@meridiancity.org in my office.

    • Reflecting on the Importance of Family Time

      21 September 2018

    • Fall is in the air – having grown up with a dad who had been a football coach that always meant football season. There is a lot that is learned on the football field – but there are many learned in the bleachers as well. I watched my dad from the bleachers but also standing on the field beside him; he taught me many life lessons during that time.
