Letter to the editor: Iowa City Council candidate Ryan Hall already has ‘an impressive track record of service’

Still from a video by Jason Smith.

By Kate Revaux

I am writing in support of Ryan Hall’s run for City Council in Iowa City and encourage everyone to vote for him on Nov. 7.
A strong progressive voice at 24, Ryan already has an impressive track record of service, building community and bringing attention to issues that matter to everyday people.
Ryan served three years with AmeriCorps after having to take a break from the unfortunate financial burden of a college education. He provided mentoring and tutoring services to underfunded public schools in Ohio, acted as a woodland firefighter in Colorado for a year and helped people save money on their utility bills in Decorah.
I am excited to see Ryan work to engage the student population in Iowa City with their local government, and fight for improved wages for university students. We need a council representative of our city, and Ryan Hall will be an incredible advocate for the students Iowa City relies on to invest in business, and for our community as a whole.

Ryan knows we have a wealth of talent and knowledge to solve problems and improve our community; to effectively address issues of affordable housing; to protect our water; promote more renewable energy, support small businesses, and local food production; to make Iowa City more walkable, and bicycle friendly.

Ryan is eager to get to work to make Iowa City more inclusive for more people. Let’s help him with our votes on Nov. 7.
