Iowa City Labor Endorsement Meeting
Kind of a non-event tonight at the Iowa City Federation of Labor's candidate endorsement meeting. The one candidate from Iowa City, Coralville or North Liberty who completed the required survey was Jim Throgmorton. The unopposed District C contender duly got the nod.
The only candidate on hand was at-large contender Raj Patel, who took a half dozen or so questions before leaving for this evening's candidate forum. Patel's reception was mostly positive. Most discussion during the later endorsement part of the meeting focused on the negatives of Michelle Payne, one delegate calling for a Matt Hayek endorsement, and a surprisingly strong assessment of Steve Soboroff's chances in District A.
