Davenport Ward 7 City Primary Election
Derek Cornette is the only Republican candidate running for 7th Ward Alderman. The Davenport City Primary Election is Tuesday, October 5, 2021. Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Derek has been working hard knocking on doors and introducing himself; putting out yard signs and sending a mailer asking for votes in this Ward. Mr Cornette is retired and has the time and desire to devote to a seat on the Davenport City Council.
Derek is running for city council because he sees at least two areas that need work. One: “Assure that the tax dollars are efficiently and economically spent on projects the citizens want and need.”
Two: Safety for our citizens. Mr Cornette, says “We have the right not to be shot at or shot, to not be burglarized, to not be robbed or mugged and to travel and walk safely anywhere in our city. Not taking care of these problems hurts the quality of life and property values for all in our city.” Other areas that he sees as needing extra attention are juvenile violence and drugs.
Derek wants to see Davenport grow and attract new businesses, foster local businesses, and support start-up efforts while keeping the city’s charm and history alive.
“I hope that I can count on your vote, and you will let me work for you in the new year. I promise that I will do my best to keep the citizens of Davenport and especially the 7th ward safe and informed.”
Please vote for Derek Cornette on Tuesday, October 5, 2021.
