A special thanks to the politicos who showed up last night at the Iowa City Federation of Labor annual chili supper. No slight meant to anyone with a schedule conflict, but I like to give credit to those who make it. The legislators get a pass for being in session, but Mary Mascher stopped by on her way home. Also on hand were supervisors Rod Sullivan, Janelle Rettig and Terrence Neuzil, Sheriff Lonny Pulkrabek (who helped organize his department before the voters kicked him upstairs into management), legislative candidates David Johnson and Sara Sedlacek... and don't forget Oxford Township Trustee Patrick Hughes, re-elected as City Fed president last night. Staffers were also representin' for Tom Harkin and Dave Loebsack.
Congrats also to award winners Joe Marron, Mary Larew and the Carpenters.
