Getting Rockingham Road in Davenport fixed was one of 1st Ward Alderman Rick Dunn's objectives when he first ran for office, and after years of stagnation, that campaign promise came to fruition this year.
While Rockingham Road can be scratched off the list, Dunn does not have designs of leaving office just yet and has announced his intent to run for re-election.
"We have seen a number of successes, including long overdue improvements to Rockingham Road and record investment in our street and sewer infrastructure, but there is still more to do," Dunn said.
Dunn is seeking a third term on the Davenport City Council after first being elected in 2013.
Dunn has supported increased investment in infrastructure, public safety and improved service delivery during his first two terms. This year, Davenport will invest more than $26 million in street and sewer improvements.
In the upcoming years, Dunn said, he would like to continue that momentum while enhancing the citizen experience and increasing economic development opportunities in west Davenport despite potential revenue challenges.
"I am confident that the City Council and staff has and will be able to continue developing new and innovative solutions to our city's greatest challenges," Dunn said.
