Iowa City

From dKosopedia

Iowa City is the original capital of Iowa and home to the University of Iowa and the Kurt Vonnegut House. Located in Johnson County, it is part of the Second Congressional District (IA-02). It is also among the most progressive communities in the state, as the effectiveness of Citizens for Public Power, Iowa City Stop Wal-Mart, War Resisters League of Iowa City, University of Iowa Antiwar Committee, and the University of Iowa College Greens indicates.

Iowa City has also been named as the best college football town in America by The Sporting News. Source: n.a. "Iowa City Voted Best College Football Town in America." The Associated Press State & Local Wire. August 4, 2005. Does it get any better than beer 'n brauts before a Hawkeyes game?

In January 2006, Ross Wilburn was chosen mayor by a majority of the city council. In July 2006, the group Iowa City Stop Walmart, led by Gary Sanders, prevented the construction of a new Super-Walmart in Iowa City.
