Hoping to get more Davenport residents involved in city affairs, a new job has been created. Thursday Mayor Frank Klipsch announced the hiring of Scott VanDeWoestyne to be the first Inclusion and Equity Administrator for Davenport.
His responsibilities will include promoting increased diversity among city staff, and working with various groups in the community.
VanDeWoestyne says he looks forward to working with city staff, the city council, churches, and community organizations.
