Several council members have underscored the dangers of those ponds over the past a number of years, however now they need to put action behind those words.

Dubuque economy, business leaders come together to reject proposal to downgrade county to micropolitan area

DUBUQUE, Iowa (KCRG) – Members of Dubuque’s leading business and economy organizations said downgrading the county from a metropolitan statistical area (MSA) area to a micropolitan area would “wipe it off the map.”

One of six people on the Aug. 18 ballot, Barley and fellow first-time candidate Ludmilla Domond are the only Black candidates running in the Aug. 18 non-partisan primary to succeed term-limited Carlos Gimenez.

The other four candidates — former mayor Alex Penelas and commissioners Esteban “Steve” Bovo, Daniella Levine Cava and Xavier Suarez — had more than
