SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Hayek should remain on City Council

Upon his election to the Iowa City City Council nearly four years ago, Iowa City Mayor Matt Hayek began serving our city with commitment, vision, and leadership. His fellow councilors recognized his leadership by electing him mayor in 2010.

Although previous councils and a referendum had failed to change the bar-entry law, Matt built consensus on the council, worked with the University of Iowa, and again took the question to the voters. The bar-entry age was changed. His patience and diligence led others to believe that downtown could be safe and attractive to all ages and many kinds of businesses.

He has continued to encourage all avenues of economic development. Matt understands that the arts and cultural profile of our city will attract private sector investment and broaden our tax base. Partnering with the university remains a priority. The UniverCity neighborhood-housing initiative is just one example of how a clear vision can become a reality with hard work and cooperation.
Matt Hayek has proven his commitment to work with all constituencies to make Iowa City better every day.

He is willing to put his many talents to use by serving on the City Council for another four-year term. We plan to vote for him on Oct. 11 (and again on Nov. 8) and encourage you to do the same.

Katherine and John Moyers
Iowa City residents
