The Chamber will host a candidate forum on Wednesday, August 29 ahead of the upcoming Iowa City City Council primary election on September 4. Join us and all five candidates at MERGE in downtown Iowa City from 7:30-8:30 am to hear more about each candidates' views on issues relevant to the business community. Coffee will be served! 

 A Special Election will be held on October 2 to select a replacement for Kingsley Botchway, who resigned on July 17. Because more than two people have filed for that election, a primary election is scheduled for September 4. A list of candidates and voting deadlines can be found on the Johnson County Auditor’s Office website.
