If you don’t have a seat at the table, bring a folding chair!” These were the triumphant words of Councilwoman Mazahir Salih this morning in Iowa City.
Last year I attended the Women’s March in DC, and was inspired by the courageous spirit I witnessed there. This year, on the anniversary of that monumental event, the government is in shutdown — but WE ARE NOT!
Watching the crowd pour into the pavilion, I was inspired once again, and filled with pride in the community we are so fortunate to have in Iowa City. Thank you to the intrepid event organizers who drew people together for this occasion, and to Brothers for hosting the reception afterwards, where I spoke about my commitment to public education, appropriate economic growth and elder care.
Help me make 2018 the year women take office by storm!
