It is March and this is typically the time that the candidates start announcing their intentions to run for Iowa City Council. Curiously, the grapevine is quiet which either indicates a sense that regardless of who runs, the outcome is likely to be status quo or folks are looking for an issue to hitch their wagons (like the ever popular "21 Ordinance").
Who's Definitely In?
Regenia Bailey (Mayor Pro-tem) running for re-election - District C
Ross Wilburn (Mayor) running for re-election - Disctrict A
Who's likely to be in?
