Host Jim Niedelman gets back to the Davenport mayoral race today.
Four candidates made the Oct. 10 primary ballot: Yvonne Collins, Iowa State Rep. Ken Croken, incumbent Mayor Mike Matson and Brandon Westmoreland. Early voting is underway in the Davenport primary.
Today, we learn a little more about Collins. She was born and raised in Davenport, where she graduated from Central High School. She earned a medical assistant degree from Hamilton Technical College, then went on to get her certified nursing degree from Scott Community College.
Collins has spent her professional career as a medical assistant and is now an integrated care coordinator.
“There are people who don’t feel that they have a voice,” she said. “I want them to know they do have a voice.”
