Luisa Bangs throws her hat into the ring for a seat on Des Moines City Council
Resident Luisa Bangs announced this week that she will be running for a seat on the Des Moines City Council.
Bangs works for the Port of Seattle at Sea-Tac Airport, and has lived in Des Moines for 15 years.
Here’s her full announcement:
After much encouragement from friends, co-workers and local business owners in our little burg by the sea, I have decided to throw my hat into the political arena as a candidate for the Des Moines City Council in the upcoming November election.
I have lived in Des Moines for 15 years and just celebrated my 30th anniversary working at Sea-Tac Airport for the Port of Seattle, in many leadership positions. The past 4 years I served on the Des Moines Arts Commission working to bring and sustain art and music to our city.
I have decided to run for a seat on the council because I believe I can make a significant impact in our community. There is great potential in our community and I believe we need to keep the city moving forward supporting responsible economic development, strengthening public safety and improving our schools for future generations.
I have been honored to receive endorsements from the following: Des Moines Mayor Dave Kaplan, Des Moines Mayor Pro-Tem Matt Pina, Councilmembers Melissa Musser, Vic Pennington and Jeremy Nutting. Also supporting my candidacy are Wayne & Susan Corey, Al & Kathy Isaac, Janel Stoneback and Dan Johnson.
Knowing Des Moines’ potential to be vibrant, welcoming and an economically viable city, I am rolling up my sleeves and enthusiastically joining the race to make a difference. While I know there are a lot of challenges ahead, I believe there are a lot more opportunities!
