Carlton Wills is career union electrician and a delegate to the Quad City Federation of Labor. He has also been a delegate to the Iowa Federation of Labor Convention multiple times. He is running against an incumbent who swears off using organized labor in city construction projects. Carlton faces an uphill battle in defeating an incumbent who is supported by Davenport’s Mayor Bill Gluba who in recent years has taken strong positions against public sector union rights. Please contact Carlton to donate or volunteer for his campaign: (563-570-1757)
If all QCLF endorsed candidates win their races, it would mean that of the ten total members on the Davenport City Council, four would be card-carrying active union members, and two others would be union-supporters, a dramatic change from the current administration.
