Ward 5 Spencer City Council Candidates

Spencer, IA (KICD)–The five candidates vying for an open at-large seat on the Spencer City Council gathered on Wednesday evening for a public forum.

The candidates were asked what they would do to make Spencer more attractive to potential businesses.

Brent Burns says having a process in place to tout the town would help.

Steve Hall says that getting airport service back would be nice.

George Moriarty says that you should tailor your offerings to the individual business.

Kelly Swancutt says promoting the city is key.

Duane Bates says touting what the city already has to offer may be enough.

Longtime Councilmember Dave Scott decided not to run for another term.

KICD News will highlight the incumbents who are running unopposed this Monday.

Replays of Wednesday night’s debate can be seen on SMU Cable Channel 2 at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, and at 3:00 p.m. on November 1st.
