He holds a Ph.D. in urban and regional planning from UCLA. He taught the subject for 24 years as a professor at the University of Iowa. He contributes to and keeps up with the literature and is knowledgeable regarding cities' "best practices." He has had two tours of duty with the Iowa City Council (1993-95; 2011-present) and is otherwise embedded in our community and culture. In addition to Iowa City and Los Angeles, he is familiar with Chicago, Kansas City, Louisville, and many other cities in this country and Germany.
Unlike his opponents, and those who stole our yard sign, Jim believes all Iowa City residents deserve to be heard – including Iowa City’s 1%, developers, and business owners. But he also knows the best policies emerge when officials’ views are tested and challenged – including his own.
To let the 1% remove him from the council would no more serve their own selfish interests – let alone the rest of us – than when we let the Regents run David Skorton out of town. Visit www.throg4IC.org
