Background & Experience Issues

October 25, 2014

“Carberry, a long-time environmental lobbyist, … is well-versed in the range of issues facing the county. Carberry has been preparing for such a position for the past 15 years. And his critique of the county’s land use plan deserves a knowledgeable and passionate spokesman on the board itself.”

“The county needs [Carberry’s] experience now rather than later.”

DI Backs Mike

“Carberry’s background as an environmental consultant guides his priorities to those of sustainability.

“This background has been evident in his stances on local issues. When there was a move to rezone 91 acres of land along Newport Road north of Iowa City for 70 homes, Carberry did not support the action.

“The Daily Iowan Editorial Board is endorsing … Carberry for County Supervisor this election. Carberry has proven experience to work to preserve the county’s natural beauty.”LINK


Mike Wins Nomination;
Ready for November 4

Thank you to all my supporters and the work that went into this victory in the June primary. The issues were a vital part of putting me over the top. Let’s get ready for the November 4 election.

My congratulations go to the other nominees and the other candidates in the primary. If I did not receive your vote in the primary, I look forward to earning it in November. I enjoy the debates on the issues and I am excited to be part of the Democratic lineup in November 4 election.

Look around this website to learn more about my campaign. You can contribute financially and you can contribute your ideas. Thank you for the trust you have placed in me. I ask for your vote on or before November 4.


"Carberry, who has extensive knowledge on environmental issues, is no stranger to confrontation or compromise. As such, he would be a strong advocate for Johnson County on a regional and state level. Although he would join a body already comprised of strong personalities, there is no danger of the existing convictions drowning out Carberry’s own. We believe he would stand his ground on issues, such as transportation and rural development, to the benefit of the entire region."
