Let’s everybody run for something: The North Liberty election

There’s a dynamic in American politics today that everybody needs to run for something. In 96 of 99 Iowa counties that probably helps, but in the People’s Republic there’s a line around the block for any and all vacancies, hints of vacancies, or rumors.
So when North Liberty found itself with not one but two vacant offices, 10 total candidates showed up: seven newcomers, two current office holders and a blast from the past. The result? A mayor with less than a majority and a council member winning with just 29 percent of the vote.
