I will be casting my vote for Phil Hemingway for the Johnson County Board of Supervisors. Phil has lived most of his life in Johnson County, having worked in both agriculture and as well as having his own mechanic’s business. Phil brings to public service a tenacity for making government fiscally responsible and accountable. He is unafraid to confront and challenge the wasteful spending of taxpayer’s money. This quality has been repeatedly demonstrated in his service on various public boards, and most notably during his tenure on the Iowa City Community School Board.
I have personally found Phil to be approachable and eager to answer constituent’s questions and concerns.
