OK, it'd be impossible to top last week's events, but things are still happening this week.
Forum season kicks off today at 2:00pm at the Coralville Public Library. The forum is sponsored by the Johnson County Task Force on Aging.This forum will feature the candidates in two open Iowa House races: Dem Dick Schwab and the GOP's Bobby Kaufmann in House 73, and Dem Stally Stutsman and Republican Steve Sherman in HD77.
Thursday the Democratic central committee gets together, 7 PM at the school district office. We'll be talking homecoming parade and fall BBQ.
Friday night 5 to 7 is the annual Bob Dvorsky birthday party in Coralville, on the South Terrace of the Marriot Hotel.Speaker is Coralville City Council Member Mitch Gross, and a bevy if candidates will be on hand. How many candidates in a bevy? Dick Schwab, Sally Stutsman, Sara Sedlacek and Nate Willems, so I guess four candidates = a bevy. But how many crows in a murder?
Sunday, September 16th from 1:00-4:00pm is the Harkin Steak Fry at the Warren County Fairgrounds. The big guest - 2016 alert - is Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley. Might be intering to see if he's better with his own speech than he was at the convention.
