Rick Messerschmidt - Committed to Community, Passion for Progress!
Thank You to all who voted for me! I truly appreciate it. I hope to convince those who voted for my opponent that I represent them as well, and will work to make West Des Moines a place we can ALL be proud of.

We are truly blessed to live in this great community. I know this as I have served both our city and our WDM School District in a number of volunteer capacities. These have provided me with a wonderful education about our community, government, and schools. I have served on many committees that include bond referendum committees, feasibility studies, updating of comprehensive plans, boards, and commissions. These opportunities have provided great insight into important aspects of West Des Moines. I served as Interim Mayor in 2007, was elected to the Park Board in 2007, and will finish my term as chairman of the Park Board at the end of 2013. I have also spent six years as the treasurer for the Greater Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau.

All of these experiences have helped me to develop a platform that focuses on what I feel are critical components in helping West Des Moines continue to be one of the premier cities in which to live and do business.

My platform for continued success:
  • Well managed economic development to provide a balance of commercial and residential development.
  • Strong oversight in the management of our city budgets.
  • Meet the needs of a growing community.
  • Small-Business Friendly.
