In this week’s episode, co-host Ryan Coonerty speaks with Waterloo, IA, Mayor Quentin Hart. They talk about his vision for Waterloo, his path to becoming his town’s first African American mayor, and how, after four terms, he’s still inspired every day to do his job. Hart also discusses the importance of taking on statewide and national leadership roles and what he’s learned serving with the Iowa League of Cities Executive Committee, the Future Ready Iowa Board, the U.S. Conference of Mayors, and others. Hart discusses why becoming mayor is not a way to elevate your stature, how diversity among political leaders can enact change, and what a mayor’s perspective can bring to conversations on federal spending. Tune in to learn more about the exciting developments in the diverse city of Waterloo and for advice on how to make an impact by starting where you are.
