WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) – One of Waterloo's at-large council members will not be seeking another term.
Sharon Juon, Waterloo City Council At-Large and Mayor Pro-Tem, announced Thursday she will not me seeing another term on the council this November. Juon cites health concerns as the reason for her decision.
“Waterloo has accomplished a lot in the last 4 years and is on the brink of achieving great things. While I might not be on the Council to see some of these goals fully implemented, I will be in the background helping push them forward. I just don’t have the energy that Waterloo citizens deserve to maintain a front row seat,” read a statement from Juon.
Juon said she announced her decision this early to allow Waterloo residents interested in the at-large seat time to organize their plans for candidacy.
Juon has been on the council since 2017 when she defeated incumbent Tom Lind. She served as Executive Director of the Iowa Northland Regional Council of Governments (INRCOG) for 25 years and also held positions at Waterloo Downtown Council and Waterloo Chamber of Commerce.
