On November 7th, Coralville residents elected Meghann Foster to her first term on the Coralville City Council along with incumbents Tom Gill and Laurie Goodrich. The three join Jill Dodds and Mitch Gross on the five-person council. Mayor John Lundell was re-elected to a third two-year term.
Foster brought in the most votes — 1,083 votes or 74% of all votes — winning in all of Coralville's precincts. She takes the seat left vacant by council member Bill Hoeft, who did not seek another term.
“I’m humbled, and I’m honored that I am able to serve the citizens of Coralville by being on the Coralville City Council,” Foster told The Gazette. “I’m excited to build on our strong foundation. I think that we obviously need to focus on our debt, and we need to focus on finding sustainable ways to generate economic growth for the future.”
Foster's term begins on January 1, 2018.
