Tom Gayman Family
  Living, working, and raising a family over the past 34
  years in Urbandale have been very rewarding. With
  that in mind, it was my time to give back to the great
  residents of Urbandale.  For Urbandale, the future is
  -bright, and completing two terms as your council
  person I understand the future needs of the city.
  Urbandale has seen tremendous growth, now we
  have over 42,000 residents.  Over the last 8 years
  , I have provided leadership, guidance, and positive
  energy as your community advocate.
  I am very proud to report the city is now functioning
  with professional full time first responders. Our
Tom Gayman (left) and his family
  response times have decreased. Both stations  
  have been remolded and updated to accommodate the modern needs of our public safety team. Your safety and the
  safety of our first responders have and will continue be my first priority as your council person.
  Serving as your councilman during the most turbulent economic times in our community’s history was both a
    challenge and opportunity. Much of my time, talent, and energy was spent in close scrutiny of your tax dollars. I have
    been proud to support no increase in taxes and smart financial decisions. We have weathered the storm. By making
    touch decision, using smart, rational, common sense thinking we have weathered the storm. I remain committed to
    spending your tax dollars as wisely as I would spend my own dollars by making tough decisions between needs and
    The future of our city is great. Housing permits are up, new businesses are locating to Urbandale, current
    businesses are expanding and we have the lowest tax rate in the metro. I will remain your on duty advocate for
    reasonable and responsive city government.
