Letter: Vote Foster for Coralville City Council

I support Meghann Foster for Coralville City Council. I have had the pleasure of knowing Foster for a little over 17 years. This is, in fact, the entirety of my life as she is my mother. She has been extremely supportive every step of the way. She has helped me realize every opportunity and interest, even those that were fleeting and didn’t always work out.

In the past weeks leading up the election I have been helping her/Mom knock doors in around Coralville. One of the things I’ve seen firsthand is her hard work and determination. She will go out even if it’s wet and rainy, if only to talk to a few more people. The thing that really struck me was the ease with which she communicates with residents. She doesn’t get lost in political speak, tossing in senseless terminology that bears little meaning. Nor does she talk down to them and pander. She finds a perfect balance, channeling her love of the city and her love of change into down-to-earth conversations with people who feel the same way.

She has been living in Coralville for my whole life. As an inside source, I can say without a doubt that she is one of you and looking out for our city.
