Diverse Progressives Vie For Local Elections Around Iowa

A diverse group of progressive candidates from across Iowa are seeking spots on city councils and school boards this year.

At least one wants to make history. If 20-year-old Rachel Junck in Ames is elected, she will be the youngest woman elected to any office in Iowa.

Many are looking to make an impact in Iowa with progressive agendas that support union workers, public education and affordable housing.

In addition to the below profiles, Starting Line recently interviewed several candidates, including Des Moines City Council candidates Marlu Abarca and Chelsea Chism-Vargas. We also profiled many of the younger progressives running in the Des Moines area suburbs.

Getting more progressive leaders into local seats is part of a larger strategy for Polk County Democrats this year. And many in other areas of the state, some spurned to activism by the Trump era of politics, are stepping up this year for the local elections being held on November 5.
