Bruce Teague is sensitive to peoples' needs

Bruce Teague has started several businesses in Iowa City aimed at helping people. He is sensitive to the needs of people. His priority issues are human rights, transportation and inclusion.

As Bruce explained at the first candidates’ forum: A Human Rights City identifies the needs of all its citizens and builds its budget to address those needs. A Human Rights City recognizes the worth of each citizen. All are valued.

Bruce wants a transportation system geared to meeting the needs of all citizens, including those who work late night shifts. He wants Iowa City to be a diverse, inclusive community where all feel welcome and are treated equally.

I share these hopes.

There are five qualified candidates. However, Bruce brings a unique set of skills that complement those now serving on the council. I hope you will join me in voting for Bruce Teague for the Iowa City Council.
