Steve Duffy for Mayor
My priority is to listen to concerns and ideas from all citizens of the City of Davenport. It’s your City!
I am one person and fully understand that it’s impossible to accomplish all wants. There may not be money in the budget, and ideas may not be agreed upon by a majority of citizens, etc.
It takes a team to run a city.
