SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Shipley just another two-faced politician

Jeff Shipley just doesn’t get it.

He thinks breaking the law isn’t that big of deal (Daily Iowan, Oct. 27). Clearly, he is missing the point that we hold our public officials to higher standards. People make mistakes, but most accept responsibility. Shipley obviously doesn’t.

He blamed his PAULA on rushing a fraternity, as if the fraternity was the reason he was drinking underage. He must not think highly of fraternities, which is fine. But when he asks to come speak at our meetings to drum up voter support of his pro-underage drinking (a.k.a. breaking the law) agenda, it shows what a two-faced politician he already is.

I hope for the sake of Iowa City and the university that he doesn’t get elected.

Mims for City Council

Those of us who live in Iowa City have an opportunity to vote for an outstanding at-large candidate for our City Council. I refer to Susan Mims.

Especially now, our council needs Susan’s analytical thinking and financial planning experience.
Susan states clearly that her top priorities are public safety, city infrastructure, and fiscal responsibility. She also stresses the importance of business-industry development and more productive cooperation among area governing bodies for cities, county, towns, local schools, and the university.

Whether you vote early or on Nov. 3, I hope you’ll join me in voting for Susan Mims.

Vote Dickens and Mims

The upcoming City Council elections are very important for Iowa City.

There are many challenges facing the city, including: government spending, revenues, crime, public safety, and infrastructure. How these challenges are met will help shape Iowa City for many years to come.

I am supporting at-large candidates Susan Mims and Terry Dickens, because I believe they both have the experience and knowledge to lead us in the right direction. Mims and Dickens have lived, worked, and raised a family in Iowa City and have a passion for the future of Iowa City.

Please support Mims and Dickens on Nov. 3.

Steve Gordon
Iowa City resident
