Total for mistakes: $14,950,000

Incumbents have spent more than $100 million. We cannot afford four more years.
I am voting for Tom Determann on Nov. 5. We need a fresh start. Tom has a very successful business creating hundreds of jobs. Tom was president of our economic development board as well as chamber president, and he was excellent to work with. Tom has outstanding connections in Washington. D.C., and Iowa and was part of the the team that brought back millions of transportation dollars to our community. Tom is very involved with the community and has seldom missed a council meeting for the past 25 years. Tom’s goals for the community are controlling our expenses and growing our tax base by attracting new businesses, creating more jobs and not raising taxes. He is a winner and I encourage everyone to vote for him on Nov. 5.
