Bruce Teague has started several businesses in Iowa City aimed at helping persons. He is sensitive to the needs of people. His priority issues: human rights, transportation and inclusion.

As Bruce explained at the first candidate’s forum: A Human Rights City identifies the needs of all its citizens and build its budget to address those needs. A Human Rights City recognizes the worth of each and every citizen. All persons are valued.

Bruce wants a transportation system geared towards meeting the needs of all citizens, including those who work late night shifts. He wants Iowa City to be a diverse inclusive community where all feel welcome and everyone is treated equally.

I share these hopes.

There are five qualified candidates. However, Bruce brings a unique set of skills to complement those now serving on the council. I hope you will join me in voting for Bruce Teague for the Iowa City City Council.
