In Their Own Words: Do you plan on voting in the Iowa City City Council elections?

City elections are Nov. 7. In Iowa City, five candidates will compete for three four-year terms on the City Council, three hopefuls for two at-large seats and two for the District B seat. We asked people on campus, “Do you know anything about the City Council candidates, and do you plan on voting?”
