Kudos to Dubuque City Council member Brett Shaw for holding a Ward 1 town hall at Flora Park on Saturday, June 1. There were a couple dozen constituents there, and Mr. Shaw was there to listen and learn before going into this summer’s council goal-setting sessions.

I appreciate Mr. Shaw taking the time to provide this opportunity for citizens to speak freely and directly to their councilperson — allowing their otherwise quiet voices and wishes to be heard. Others on council should take note.
