SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Vote for Lundell

John Lundell’s dedication to public service, graduate training in urban and regional planning, professional background, and Coralville service qualify him as the best candidate for Coralville’s mayor.

John is the deputy director of the UI’s Prevention Research Center and received the David J. Skorton award for Staff Excellence in Service, the highest award for a UI staff member. John has also served as director of transportation planning for the Johnson County Council of Governments and director of the Iowa City Transit system.

John’s energy and community spirit are evident in his volunteer work, including the Coralville Library Board, Coralville Volunteer Fire Department, and on the boards of the Iowa Firefighters Memorial Park and Crisis Center. John is the treasurer of the Iowa Public Health Association, head of the American Public Health Association Injury Control and Emergency Health Services Section, and vice head of the Johnson County Metropolitan Planning Organization.

During his 10 years on the Coralville City Council, John has supported projects including: flood mitigation, public safety services, expanded biking/walking trails, the new youth sports park, community gardens, the Coralville Center for Performing Arts, conversion of a brownfield area to the Iowa River Landing District, and partnership with UI in the new UIHC clinic at Iowa River Landing.

We moved our residence and law office to the Iowa River Landing in 2010 because we believe in and share the vision of a vibrant Coralville community demonstrated by John Lundell, Kelly Hayworth, Jim Faucett, and the Coralville City Council.

Please vote for John Lundell on Nov. 5.

Who’s nude?

Regarding the UI TA who accidentally sent a file attachment of her nude photos instead of the solutions to math problems to her students: Her mistake was attaching the wrong file to an email. I bet a fairly sizable percentage of the people who are having a big laugh at her expense have been sexual beings at some point in their lives, and that’s the big scandal — it’s akin to accidentally leaving the door open and somebody’s parents walk in, different in degree, sure, but not in kind. I hope she doesn’t quit, keeps going, does some great math, writes a book about it, walks around campus with her head held high, smiles big at every leerer, pushes back at every doubter, has a long, full good life.
