I grew up in Newton and have seen numerous changes over the years. Recently, I have noticed many developments I am excited about. Old, dilapidated buildings have come down and have been replaced with new construction. We’ve made investments in our parks and our bike and hike trail system. All these enhancements are important to current and future residents and give visitors a much more favorable impression. There is a renewed feeling of pride in Newton.
I am especially excited about the improvements in downtown Newton and around DMACC. I can’t wait to see the renovation of the historic Maytag Hotel building and a design for the green space around DMACC.
Evelyn George has been a strong and capable member of our city council and supporter of this progress. She will get my vote for Newton City Council at-large.
