Michael Loew (pronounced low) is running for his first term on the Chariton City Council in the Nov. 5 election.
“I’m running because I’ve heard some of the residents’ concerns with the area and things they want changed such as businesses leaving and infrastructure crumbling. They want someone to try and help resurrect Chariton because they think it’s dying out. I want a community that I can be proud to call home and that’s a great place for my kids to live as well as all the other residents,” Loew said.
Loew and his wife, Nicole, moved to Chariton on July 1, 2018. Nicole is running for the Chariton School Board.
Loew spoke about some things he would like to address. “Resurrecting the city square could be helpful. There could be more industries drawn to Chariton as well. A lot of people here work for Hy-Vee, Johnson Machine Works and Lucas County Health Center, but there’s not a lot of large businesses beyond that,” Loew said.
