We offered all registered Iowa City City Council candidates up to five minutes to talk about themselves and their goals. (We have offered this service to candidates in all local elections since 2004, when we were approached by the Center for Governmental Studies to pilot their Video Voter Project.)

All five candidates responded, and are listed here in the order they contacted us.
