Another resignation, but two new appointees finally fill Iowa City TRC

IOWA CITY, Iowa (KWWL) - The Iowa City Ad Hoc Truth and Reconciliation Commission has a full nine members for the first time since March 8.

Layana Navarre-Jackson became the fifth commissioner to resign from the TRC on Friday April 9. Counting facilitator Jesse Case's resignation, there have now been six in all.

Unlike many of the previous resignations, Navarre-Jackson did not cite arguments or dysfunction as a reason for resigning; rather not having enough time in her schedule.

Christine Nobiss and Daphney Daniel were appointed Monday morning to fill the last two vacancies. Three other members were appointed last Tuesday.

Both the city's TRC and one formed by the Iowa Freedom Riders plan to meet this Thursday. KWWL will have coverage of both meetings.
