Chamber Candidate Endorsements – Remember to Vote in Tomorrow’s City/School Election


As a service to our members, the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with our Good Government Committee, invited the 11 individuals seeking election to the School Board and the two candidates seeking election to the City Council for the City of Sioux City to promote their candidacy in personal interviews with this committee. 

The Chamber performs this task as one component of the research required to encourage informed voting while advancing the mission of our organization, which remains to help our local economy grow through the promotion of economic development and quality-of-life initiatives. The committee interviewed all 13 candidates for these offices and met with several of the candidates multiple times in this process. Based on these interviews, the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce’s Good Government Committee has endorsed the following candidates who are listed alphabetically next to the office they are seeking.

Sioux City – City Council:  Tom Murphy

          Sioux City Community School Board: Marguerite Cortez, Lance Ehmcke,
Semehar Ghebrekidan, John Meyers, Earl Miller
