ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Mike Carberry, chair of the Johnson County Board of Supervisors, is seeking re-election to the board in Iowa’s June 5 Democratic Primary.

“I have made a difference in my first term and I want to continue making a difference in Johnson County in a second term,” Carberry said. Carberry was the deciding vote in passing the county’s minimum wage ordinance and community ID card in 2015. He stopped urban sprawl as the decisive vote in eliminating the North Corridor Development Area as the preferred location for rural residential development.

Carberry, 57, has supported local food farmers by hiring a local foods specialist and wants to build on that by opening a county food hub to create a place for farmers to bring their products and a central vendor to market them. He wants to continue with plans to establish farmer incubator plots at the Historic County Poor Farm.

Carberry lobbies in Des Moines to support legislation and regulations to improve water quality. He is leading Solarize Johnson County, a program to let county residents purchase residential solar panels at discounted group rates.

Carberry kicked off his re-election campaign with a birthday party at The Mill Friday, Jan. 26 with speakers and music.
