David Adelman for City Council

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

David Adelman seems to be attracting many of the local bigwigs for his bid to replace outgoing Des Moines Councilman (and Iowa Democratic Party Chairman) Michael Kiernan. If I had any computer skills, I would attach his invitation for his kickoff Thursday at 5:30pm at the Cub Club at Principal Park. On his host list you’ll find names like Crawford, many Mauros, Cownies, and Hubbells.

Good news for fans of “Friday Night Lights” (one of the best shows on tv no one is watching), NBC announced the show is coming back.
