VGM’s Tom Powers wins Waterloo City Council seat

VGM is proud to announce that Tom Powers of the Government Relations team has won the Waterloo, IA city council seat. This was a special election, filling a vital seat after the council member for that ward resigned in April.

In several recent votes, the city council has been deadlocked 3 to 3 and council members say they’ve been having trouble moving forward on issues. Waterloo City Council meetings have been frustrating both council members and Waterloo residents with the lack of progress in the past few months.

Tom’s excited about this opportunity saying ““It’s not a single-person thing; it’s about working together as a team,” he said. “I’ve always been on a team, whether it was football, the military, the fire department and VGM.”

Congratulations Tom!
