My wife Margie and I have a son and two daughters, and are now very excited to have four grandchildren. Margie and I love the outdoors: we ride bikes, motorcycles, and play golf. We enjoy football, cheering on BSU and my alma mater, Auburn. I like to restore vintage cars whenever I can find the time.

Margie and I are members at Holy Apostles Catholic Church in Eagle/Meridian.

I bring decades of managerial experience in state and local government.

After serving as an elected official in five different positions over the past 25 years, I have a history of championing issues residents feel strongly about: public involvement, property rights, transparency and a conservative approach to budgeting.

Voters deserve competent and qualified people representing them. Local government affects people more than they realize.
Ensure Eagle isn’t growing beyond its infrastructure capacity.

Contrary to what developers say, growth does not pay for itself, which places the burden on current long-term residents and taxpayers. We need to make sure we aren’t sticking residents with the bill while developers make millions.

Capt. Marc Degl'Innocenti

Candidate for Mayor
I will do a better job as Mayor, because we need honesty and transparency back at City Hall. I will serve in truth and honesty!
Let’s have smarter and more conservative growth that’s better planned out.
We need better financial planning.
Capt. Marc Website

A Simple Yet Honest Platform
NO Avimor Annexation! It’s not a financially viable option for the City of Eagle and its residents. My political opponent is for it. Why?! Most people were against annexation. The City Council passed it anyway.
Better planned growth and not over 100 construction permits open at one time! Be considerate to our people!
Actual Foothills trail plans for horses, dogs, hikers, and bicycles.

No more rezoning of golf courses and agricultural lands into residential housing. We’ve had enough of that! I support the 4H.
It takes more than 3 minutes to hear what people have to say. A vote for Captain Marc is a vote for your own freedom of speech!
Proper legal and financial reviews prior to selling, buying, ceding, or annexing real property.

Brad Pike

Candidate for Mayor
I am committed to making Eagle City a better place for all residents. I believe in transparency, accountability, and listening to the needs of the community. I promise to be conservative, a good steward with your tax dollars and a responsible advocate for our community.
Brad Website

Why Brad’s running for Mayor
As your next Mayor, I bring a passion for public service and years of experience. My priority is to deliver on the concerns of the citizens of Eagle, such as public safety, infrastructure, and economic development, which will determine the city’s future. My leadership will ensure that Eagle becomes more conducive for people to live, work, and raise a family. I am ready to handle the challenges of our swift expansion and inadequate infrastructure. My assurance to the residents of Eagle is to make decisions that are sound and based on thorough consideration so that the city is equipped to tackle these issues and satisfy the community’s needs.

I am asked why I am running for Mayor. The answer is simple. I want the quality of life that drew me to Eagle in the first place to be a primary focus of the Eagle we are planning for OUR future. The current Mayor doesn’t share that focus and is taking Eagle in the opposite direction. He failed to deliver on many of the promises he made when elected four years ago and would not listen to the people who elected him. His actions and leadership have accelerated Eagle’s growth beyond our ability to accommodate it.

Jason Pierce

Candidate for Mayor
As a long-time Eagle resident, I have worked with neighbors and members of our community to change the tone and tenor of engagement. Most importantly, I have brought people together to create a shared vision to build an Eagle for all of us.

Running again for Mayor
Jason Pierce is running again to be the Mayor of the City of Eagle.

I moved to Eagle in 2003 with my wife, Jennifer, and our two children, Brandon and Brianna. As a husband, father and business owner, I have been active in every aspect of Eagle life. While running my small business and coaching Little League baseball, I also had a desire to serve in my community.

Jennifer and I immediately fell in love with this wonderful community, with its high-quality designs and building standards that made it different than “anyplace, USA.”

I quickly became involved in Eagle and served on committees that I believed contributed to the value of community and family. For the last 20 years, I’ve had the privilege to serve the Eagle Kiwanis, the Landing Community Center, Eagle Chamber of Commerce, Eagle High School Baseball, Little League, and act as a host family for the Boise Hawks.

It was an honor to receive Kiwanian of the Year and the Eagle Chamber of Commerce Business Man of the Year & Leadership Award. I’ve also served on Eagle’s Parks and Pathways Committee, Eagle Planning and Zoning Commission, Eagle Urban Renewal, Eagle City Council, and the last 4 years as your Mayor of the City of Eagle.

City of Eagle Candidates for City Council 2023

Christopher Hadden

Candidate for City Council
City council has the most power in a traditional local city government in the sense that it is the voting body,” Hadden said. “The mayor only gets to vote in the case of a tiebreaker. And they also have veto power. And so that’s why I’ve decided to run for city council.
Christopher Article

Slowing Growth
Christopher is one of six candidates running for two city council seats in Eagle. The top two candidates receiving the most votes will win the seats.

Christopher has lived in Eagle since he moved to the area with his family in 2016 from Arizona. Born and raised in New Jersey, he is a contractor by trade and has worked for companies like Honeywell and Modis. Christopher now is the principal owner of HadCo, where he continues to work in the remodeling business. He said the skills he has picked up as a contractor will help him to act in line with what the city’s citizens want with new developments and zoning.

“I can comb through all these zoning laws and contracts — I’ve had extensive experience in contract negotiations and so forth — and I find out how they can be better written to protect the citizens of Eagle,” Hadden said. “And also limit growth and give everything that the city of Eagle residents want and expect.”

Robert is that citizen.
Robert Website

Get to know Robert
The citizens of Eagle came out in force, for over two years, telling the leaders of the city one clear message, “No Avimor annexation to Eagle”. What happen next is a miscarriage of power the has awaken our city to take action.

As a resident of our great city for many years, I have seen the passion and commitment to the “small town charm” everyone I speak to has. So it came at a great surprise when our current City Council decided to double the size of our city in the next few years, by allowing this Avimor annexation to go through. I have stood up at the public meetings, I have has listened to residence tell me, while sitting on my HOA board, that Avimor does not belong here. Yet, despite over 85% of us not wanting this, our council has turned their backs on us. This cannot continue.

As your member of City Council, I will do everything in my power to reverse the the Avimor decision. It may be too late to turn the tides. However, it is not too late to boot out the ones who did this. What new crazy ideas will they come up with next? Who will be the next developer to come in and want this council to dump another bloated, oversized, subdivision on the tax payers of Eagle? It is not too late to stop the crazy train from going forward. Eagle is Ready for Robert!
