Crowded Field in Davenport Primary

Oct 7, 2019

Davenport voters will have a lot of choices on Tuesday in the city primary election, and not just for mayor. Several candidates are running for each of three seats on the city council.

Six people are running for mayor, and just two from Tuesday's ballot will advance to the general election in November. They include two aldermen, Mike Matson and Rita Rawson, retired insurance manager Steve Duffy, businessman Dan Portes, an employee of the public works department Dean Weber, and Elizabeth VanCamp who works for the University of Iowa hospitals.

Three people are running to represent the Third Ward, including incumbent Marion Meginnis, the Fourth Ward has four candidates including incumbent Ray Ambrose, and in the 5th ward, voters will choose from a list of six (incumbent not running). 

Polls will be open on Tuesday from 7 am until 8 pm.
