Brianna Wills works tirelessly for her community through a variety of service groups. Whether she is delivering Meals on Wheels, or serving as Parent Teacher Student Organization vice president or president, co-president for the Districtwide Parents’ Organization or the keynote speaker at Dance Marathon, Brianna is committed to making the lives of those around her better. She has professional depth and leadership skills in development and public relations for non-profit organizations such as Old Brick and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Brianna sees the big picture and can bring groups together because of her experience and commitment to improving society as a whole, such as her commitment to providing access to affordable housing as well as transportation. Without a doubt, Brianna Wills is an asset to the Iowa City Council.

It is my honor to confidently endorse Brianna Wills for the at-large Iowa City Council seat. Her well-known commitment to our community through her work with the Johnson County Planning and Zoning Commission, Iowa City neighborhood park planning committee and time spent on numerous committees for the Iowa City Community School District speak to her dedication to making Iowa City a welcoming place to work and live.

In the time I have known Brianna, I have seen how caring and thoughtful she is, and the integrity she shows while working with others. Brianna will be a true advocate for all of Iowa City, and she will ensure that every citizen has a chance to have their voice heard. Brianna is a thinker and a doer. She is a no-nonsense problem solver.

Brianna deserves the opportunity to serve the people of Iowa City as a council member, and Iowa City deserves a council member as dedicated and passionate about her community as Brianna.
