Opportunities for more memories

My name is Cindy Altmaier Riley and I would like to be part of the Coralville City Council. I currently own and manage a small business in Coralville, Winans Chocolates & Coffees, and I strongly believe Coralville is a community worth investing in.

I have a long history in the Coralville area — I attended Northwest Junior High and graduated from West High School. I have fond memories of attending movies at the Coralville drive-in movie theater. I remember wishing my Dad would stop and let me slide down the giant slide as we drove past on the way to grandma’s each Sunday after church. Over the years, my kids spent hours playing in the S.T. Morrison Park. These are the type of memories I would like all residents of Coralville to have an opportunity to create.

This is possible with a City Council that is focused on creating good jobs in Coralville, providing great support services and celebrating diversity in our community. I believe I can help with my strong business background.

Goals for my time in office:

1. Promote financially stable and environmentally friendly development in Coralville by attracting businesses (small and large) that will employ area residents so they can make a fair wage and raise healthy, happy families.

2. Support the residents of Coralville by promoting affordable housing and affordable child care.

3. Make Coralville a community that celebrates a healthy lifestyle and great recreational activities.

I would appreciate your vote on Nov. 7.
