Many gathered Monday night to meet the men running for Council Bluffs Mayor. The forum was organized by the Council Bluffs Business Association.
Both candidates first introduced themselves and then answered questions. Both agreed they have big shoes to fill. Tom Hanafan is retiring after a quarter century as the city’s mayor. Each told us they’re uniquely qualified for the job.
Matt Walsh said, “I think my tenure on the city council and my background as a businessman give me a unique perspective on how government should operate."
Brent Siegrist said, “I think I bring an outsiders view in terms of understanding politics, but also understanding how to run an organization and again the executive experience. I ran the Iowa house of representatives with their various departments."
