At about 7:20 p.m. Thursday night (May 2), Jeremy Nutting was appointed and sworn in as the newest member of the Des Moines City Council, filling the position recently vacated by Dan Caldwell.

Jeremy and his wife Yvonne Nutting own and operate Down & Out Demolition, LLC (http://www.downandoutdemolition.com/) out of their home in Des Moines, where they have lived for eleven years. They specialize in construction and tenant improvement demolitions for commercial properties.

Nutting and his company are proud sponsors of the Des Moines Farmers Market and the Des Moines Chili Cook Off – which he won in 2009 – among other community projects and charitable organizations.

Jeremy says he: “felt a calling to be a part of the community and thought I could represent the community (well).”

He is 37-years old.

“Congratulations to Des Moines’ newest Councilmember Jeremy Nutting,” Mayor Dave Kaplan said on his Facebook Page. “Looking forward to working with him.”

“And thank you to David Litowitz, Dave Markwell, Jim Melia, Patricio Mendoza, Amber Scott, Janel Stoneback and Ken Taylor for volunteering to serve our community,” he added. “We’re blessed to have your commitment in our City.”
