Des Moines Register Endorses Josh Mandelbaum

Mandelbaum proved he was the workhorse. He prepared detailed issue positions, walked the neighborhoods, secured endorsements and seemed to be everywhere on social media…. Mandelbaum has another thing in his favor: his knowledge of environmental issues and, in particular, clean water, one of the biggest issues facing Des Moines. As an environmental lawyer and lobbyist for the Environmental Policy Center, Mandelbaum entered the race criticizing Hensley’s support of the controversial Statehouse bill to dismantle the Des Moines Water Works.
