Hi, I'm Diana Lachiondo.
I'm a fourth-generation Idahoan, working mother of two, proven problem-solver, and your Ada County Commissioner, D1.
I am Idaho born-and-raised. My grandfather came to Boise from the Basque country as a teenager and—though he had nothing—was able to build a life, successful business, and family here. That family carries his work ethic and passion for this community today, and I am inspired by his legacy every day.
PROVEN PROBLEM SOLVER
In my nearly five years as director of community partnerships for the City of Boise, I worked on proactive solutions that benefited all residents, with focus on children, veterans, housing, those experiencing homelessness, refugees and the elderly. I’m a proven problem-solver and strategic thinker with a solid track record of bringing community leaders together to tackle our toughest challenges. It was this work that inspired me to seek public office for the first time: after observing Ada County leaders in action and finding their leadership on pressing challenges to be lacking, I decided it was time to step up to the plate. We need leaders who show up every day, for everyone.
Both in work and my spare time, I’m passionate about improving quality of life for people in this community. I’m a United Way of Treasure Valley board member, Treasure Valley Education Partnership core team member, a member of the Neighbors United planning team, Energize Our Neighborhood strategic leadership team, a Regional Housing and Homelessness Roundtable leader, and a Boiseko Gazteak (Children’s Basque Dancing) teacher.
