Best Council Aide

Jon Gilvar

He's been a thorn in city staff's side for a while, but the ambitious aide to Councilmember Beverly Griffith can't seem to stop pushing his boss' agenda. Using lots of figures, and a load of common sense, Gilvar helped uncover the stupidity of the Davenport MUD deal and the raw deal known as the FAIR fiasco. A tireless work ethic and a suspicious mind keep Gilvar on the lookout for bad deals and wasteful expenditures, and Austin's taxpayers are the ones who benefit.
