Perspectives - Recent Davenport Events
A quick post this morning, and more later today.
First, the fuss over the cameras should be minimized. A court challenge was always in the cards as well as an appeal to the State Supreme Court. Hopefully the alderman will allow this to proceed. Davenport was the first city in Iowa to take this issue on, and four other cities have since followed. Somewhat like Des Moines IMPACT Fee issue, the State Courts need to rule on this. And I wager the legislature as well.
Illustrating my theory no one person is irreplaceable, Dan Huber leaving Davenport One is a loss and yet a great opportunity for Davenport. Dan is an extremely talented individual, who has had job offers from other very large chambers over the last few years. But like many who work every day to make Davenport know, it’s a lot of heavy lifting. The change will be best for his family and ultimately the D1 organization.
Go Mike Loos, go.
Congrats Larry Minard, Roxanna Moritz and Chris Gallin. As well as Chairman Hancock! It will be very interesting to see Moritz rock the boat. Too bad the county doesn’t televise its meetings.
