There’s a lot to be excited about in Coralville, and there’s also more we can do, especially in the areas of community development and affordable housing. It’s wonderful that our community is growing, but we need to make sure that growth is inclusive and benefits the entire community. I look forward to helping Coralville continue to grow and thrive.”
