A conversation with Mayor Frank Cownie, the longest serving mayor for the City of Des Moines, Iowa, who is running for re-election. Here in a two-part conversation we talk about what he has promised to do, what he has done, and the issues that so many people care about. We also talk about hyper-local issues like potholes and the technology that he has implemented to connect citizens with their local government. So much to unpack here...click to listen.
Here I continue my conversation with Mayor Frank Cownie and first ask him about the issues regarding water, water safety and the impact it has on not only the residents of Des Moines but the communities that are the customers of the Des Moines Water Works. We also talk about climate, flooding, taxes and more. Here, once again, is his re-election website. And you can click below to listen to Part Two.
