This week, Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) spoke on the House Floor to honor Dubuque Mayor Roy Buol and congratulate him on his retirement.
“I rise today to recognize and honor one of Dubuque, Iowa’s most respected citizens, and a fixture of the community — Mayor Roy Buol.
“Serving ten years on City Council and sixteen years as Mayor, Roy dedicated the last twenty-six years to shaping the vibrant community of Dubuque.
“His leadership and contributions transformed Dubuque into the ‘Masterpiece of the Mississippi’ and have allowed this community to flourish.
“Dubuque truly is a great place to live, work, and raise a family.
“Mayor Buol’s service to Dubuque is a reminder that effective leadership begins with understanding the community and is best carried out through partnerships and collaboration.
“I know I speak for many when I say: thank you, Mayor Buol.
“Thank you, M. Speaker, I yield back the balance of my time.”
