WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Agnes Kress has announced a run for Waterloo city council.  Kress, 37, is running for Ward 4 - her first time seeking elected office.

Agnes is a graduate of East High, and has lived in Waterloo's 4th ward her entire life. 

She has served Waterloo by volunteering for various non-profits and community events.

In a news release she says, “We have to change the perception of Waterloo by combating blight and communicating the positives in our community. The 4th ward, specifically North and East Waterloo, are not getting the same attention as other parts of the city. We need a person who lives there, knows the area and people, and will advocate on their behalf to bring change.”

She continues to say, “I’m just your average citizen in Waterloo who wants to make sure that the 4th Ward’s opinions are being heard and represented. I want to be a part of the solution.”

Agnes Kress is the Volunteer Coordinator for Catholic Charites of the Archdiocese of Dubuque based in Waterloo. She worked as a newscast director at KWWL for more than 11 years.  She also works part time at Younkers and seasonally for the National Cattle Congress fair.

The 4th Ward seat is currently held by Quentin Hart, who is leaving the position to run for Waterloo mayor.

Chris Schwartz and Jerome Amos have also announced intentions for the city council seat.
