Letter: Ryan Hall will address issues that matter

I support Ryan Hall for City Council in Iowa City.

A strong progressive voice at 24, Hall has an impressive track record of service, building community, and bringing attention to issues that matter to everyday people.

He 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 him 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 Hall will be an advocate for the students Iowa City relies on to invest in business, and for our community.

He 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.

He 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.
