With city elections just around the corner, I wanted to take a minute and give Davenport Alderman at-large Kyle Gripp a pat on the back for his amazing work throughout his first term. Kyle has always had passion for the city of Davenport, and is a wonderful voice in our community.
When speaking to Kyle out and about, or keeping up on city happenings and discussions on his social media accounts, you feel his commitment immediately. He works hard to keep the old charm for our city while bringing in new and innovative solutions to move us forward. He works hard to keep young families like my own calling Davenport home by bringing to the table ideas and discussions that will economically keep our city moving forward.
I, for one, am always reaching out to Kyle and asking, “what is going there” or “when will we see this,” and he always gets back to me quickly and writes an explanation of what the plan is or what the desired plan is. He then turns around and asks for my input while truly listening.
I can’t wait to see what the next couple of years bring Davenport with Kyle Gripp as a Davenport alderman at-large.
