Coralville Suddenly Caught-Up In Big Time Politics

CORALVILLE, Iowa - The city of Coralville is attracting national attention after a national group started spending money to criticize their debt.

"Debt reduction, no matter where, is a chief objection of the group," said Mark Lucas, director of the Iowa chapter of Americans for Prosperity.

The organization is spending an undisclosed amount of money to distribute mailings and make phone calls to residents ahead of Tuesday's election. The group doesn't back any particular candidate, but the mailings list potential issues and name three incumbents seeking re-election within city government.

"The incumbents have a poor record when it comes to deficit spending and need to be held accountable," Lucas said.

Incumbent Bill Hoeft said he was surprised to receive a phone call from the New York Times about the matter.

"I never thought for a minute that when I decided to run I would be interviewed by the New York Times," he said. "We have a lot to be proud of here, and we're working to get better every day."

The organization is critical of incentives at the Iowa River Landing as well as the city's $280 debt among other issues.

Coralville Mayor Jim Fausett said he's never seen an outside group attack the city like this in his 36 years as an elected official.
