District 1 Commissioner
Diana Lachiondo spent the majority of her career in the private and nonprofit sectors and nearly five years as the Director of Community Partnerships for the City of Boise before being elected to serve on the Ada County Board of Commissioners in 2018. During her time with the City of Boise, she worked on proactive solutions for all residents – with a focus on children, seniors, veterans, the homeless population, and refugees. Diana worked with community leaders and stakeholders to launch the Housing and Homelessness Roundtable in February of 2015. The Roundtable is supporting a first-of-its-kind “Housing First” effort to address homelessness in the state of Idaho. Diana also led the development of the Boise Pre-K project in conjunction with the Boise School District, which has served as a template for high-quality preschool partnerships around the valley and state. Diana is a proven problem solver and strategic thinker with a solid track record for bringing community leaders together to tackle our toughest challenges.
Diana is passionate about improving the quality of life for people in Ada County. She is a United Way of Treasure Valley board member, a member of Neighbors United and previously served on the Treasure Valley Education Partnership and the Boise Public Schools Foundation.
As Commissioner, Diana plans to lead on regional growth issues, homelessness, and the growing opioid problem.
