Vote for Shimp

RUSS REICHERTS

Retired Black Hawk County deputy

WATERLOO -- A great thing is happening in Waterloo; a young father is stepping forward to provide leadership on the City Council. His name is Chris Shimp. I have followed Chris for the last few years and couldn’t be more excited about this ambition for Waterloo. Chris was born and raised in Waterloo, graduated from Columbus and stuck around to raise his two children here.

Chris wanted to keep his neighbors informed and make sure the city recognized them. In order to do that he started the largest neighborhood association in Waterloo, the Liberty Park Neighborhood Association. He’s orchestrated neighborhood cleanups, National Night Out events and monthly meetings, where he invites city leaders such as Chief Dan Trelka or Mayor Quentin Hart.

He volunteers and serves on the city Board of Adjustment. Last year, his peers voted him chairman. In 2016 he was the chairman of My Waterloo Days.

Now Chris has stepped forward to run for Waterloo City Council. If you live on Prospect Boulevard, near Hoover Middle School, Kingsley Elementary, Hometown Foods or the Ansborough fire station then I highly encourage you to vote for Chris Shimp.
