SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Support Hayek for City Council

On Oct. 11 and again on Nov. 8, I will cast a vote for Iowa City Mayor Matt Hayek for Iowa City City Council.

He has shown strong leadership during his first-term on the council. From dealing with the aftermath of the 2008 floods to working on ways to improve economic development in Iowa City, he has shown that actions do speak louder than words. His experience will be an asset as the council deals with the future budget challenges facing Iowa City.

I believe that the traits embodied by Matt are unique and refreshing in a person of his stature. He is a person of sound judgment, humility, hard work and common sense. These characteristics complement his strong commitment to public service. Matt has proven to be a dedicated community leader that the people of Iowa City can be proud of.

Please join me in supporting Matt Hayek for another four-year term on the Iowa City Council.

Support Patel for City Council

I support electing Raj Patel to the Iowa City City Council.

Patel has put in the time and energy necessary to be aware of the issues important to the Iowa City community. When I first met Raj, he was an 18-year-old student already committed to public service and interested in learning as much as he could about becoming a leader.

From reaching out to members of the community to serving as the council liaison for the University of Iowa Student Government, he has taken a path that has given him knowledge of municipal services and an awareness of community issues that has sparked a desire to serve as a councilman.

For the last few years, he has put in the time and energy in the community to make sure that if elected he would serve us well on the City Council.

Patel has the leadership, work ethic and judgment I look for in a civic leader. I ask you to join me in supporting his public service to our community.
