Dubuque's "First Citizens" honored Thursday night

Posted:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Every year, KWWL's coverage partner the Telegraph Herald chooses and honors a First Citizen.

This year, however, the TH picked two: John and Alice Butler, of Cottingham and Butler, an insurance group based in Dubuque.

According to the Telegraph Herald, the couple addressed a crowd of 300 people Thursday night at the TH's First Citizen ceremony at the Diamond Jo Casino in Dubuque.

The TH reports the Butlers grew the business from two employees to more than 400.

The two, according to the Telegraph Herald, were very humble at Thursday's ceremony, where they were joined by past First Citizen award recipients.
