Coralville's Laurie Goodrich running for second City Council term

Three seats up for grabs in Nov. 7 election

CORALVILLE — Laurie Goodrich is seeking a second term on the Coralville City Council.

Goodrich, 62, was elected to the council in 2013. She announced Monday she is running for re-election in the Nov. 7 city election.

Goodrich, who has lived in Coralville since 1984, said in a Monday news release she wants to continue to capitalize on Coralville’s strengths, advance current goals and have a positive impact on residents’ lives. She expressed a desire to support public safety, infrastructure and economic growth.

“I’m passionate about helping our community to be the best it can be. I feel a responsibility to give back to a community that has invested so much in our family over the years. I want to see seniors, young families, recent graduates and all those in between continue to enjoy services they have grown to expect, as well as find economic security in sustainable projects and growth,” Goodrich said in the release.

Goodrich said she feels it is important to take part in community policies and ordinances. She graduated from the Iowa League of Cities Municipal Leadership Academy in 2014 and will receive recognition from the League for Certified Elected Municipal Official later this month. She graduated from the 2017 Johnson County Citizen’s Police Academy this year.

In total, there are three City Council seats up for grabs in the upcoming election. In addition, Mayor John Lundell has announced he will seek re-election.
