Over the past few months, I’ve gotten to know Andrew Arnold and heartily support him for Davenport City Council alderman at-large. Andy will fight for many of the issues that are important to me: Strengthening our beautiful, but often ignored central city, affordable, safe housing, including raising standards for landlord accountability, and maintaining and strengthening our city’s infrastructure of sewers, roads, parks, and municipal internet.

He is committed to growing our economy by encouraging small-business development. He also places a high priority on protecting our environment and natural resources, including our amazing riverfront.

Finally, Andy is creative, energetic, caring, smart, and extraordinarily personable. He is a fresh voice and will make a great city leader. I encourage you to vote for him for alderman at-large for Davenport City Council on Nov. 7.
