Bloomington City Council, District 1:
Dwayne Lowman: ‘We are at a crossroads’

BLOOMINGTON —“We’re all in this together,” says Dwayne Lowman. “I go to everybody who votes and knock on their doors… They know I’m listening.” Lowman is running for a third term for the District I seat on the Bloomington City Council — his third race with AFL-CIO endorsement.

“We are at kind of a crossroads,” Lowman says of Bloomington. The city, he says, is not just another suburb. “We’re a major force from an economic standpoint.”

Lowman wants Bloomington to be “a community of choice,” adding, “I don’t know if young folks today can come back and live in this community… It’s not a place you can choose to live if you can’t afford to pay the rent.”

He sees two priorities: “bring good-paying jobs to Bloomington” and “make sure there is an affordable place to live.”

Lowman grew up in Bloomington and graduated from Kennedy High School.

His first job was a union job, bagging groceries at Byerly’s as a UFCW member. He also is a former member of the Communications Workers of America. He currently works as a senior operational analyst for Assurant.
