City Council & Cedar Rapids: The Local Politics Landscape with Councilmember Ashley Vanorny (Cedar Rapids, Iowa, D-5)
Show Notes

When you think ‘Iowa’, you may think of presidential campaigns and the buzz that surrounds the infamous caucuses. However, politics happens in the state 365, 24/7, especially in Cedar Rapids. In this episode, we had the pleasure of speaking with Cedar Rapids Councilmember Ashley Vanorny (D-5) about the politics of her district, the politics of city council, and what inspired her to run for local office. A look inside city council, what it does, and why local politics are extremely important, this episode will inspire you to get civically engaged (and maybe run for office).
