Jeremy Nutting for Des Moines City Council HeadshotWhy Politics?

That always seems to be the first question I’m asked. The answer is simple, I have no desire to be a “Politician” my desire is to support the great City of Des Moines! I want to make a difference in our community, in the city where we are raising our children, in the town where we see potential around every corner!

As a 13yr resident and dedicated family man, my wife, Yvonne, and I live here with our two daughters, Natalie 8 & Lilah 6. I vow to continue to helping Des Moines become the city we all yearn it to be. A place where our families feel safe, there is a sense and feel of community, where citizens and businesses thrive, all while protecting the quality of life and character of our amazing city!

Jeremy lives here with his familyResidents of our community know what a special place we live in. We are fortunate to be located in an area that has expedient connections to everywhere, minutes from the airport, I-5, other major thoroughfares and waterways. We have public, easily accessible, walkable beaches and waterfront property, along with majestic views of Mount Rainier, the Cascades and the Olympics! We have full time and seasonal Marina Moorage along with overnight guest moorage available for convenient access to the Des Moines Creek Trail, Des Moines Beach Park and the Des Moines Farmers Market (Saturdays, June — October.) But with all of our incredible natural resources and phenomenal location many of our businesses are still struggling to prosper and properties are still standing vacant. This is something I intend to remedy!

As a local building contractor, business owner and employer I am accustomed to working in and with the city. I understand the struggles and can relate to our local businesses. With young children in the public school system, I understand the challenges facing our youth and long to create a bright future for the next generation.

I pledge to:

  • Encourage business development and economic growth in our community
  • Support government services that protect our community and keep it running smoothly
  • Utilize my background as a Business Owner and a Construction Manager to increase the knowledge base and success of our city government and its operations
  • Capitalize on our waterfront and marina, promoting Des Moines as a “Destination City” for visitors, residents and businesses
  • Connect with residents and businesses to understand their concerns and make them feel their voices are being heard

I have the passion, drive, knowledge and commitment to help build a thriving community, but I need your support. Together we can make a difference!
