DAVENPORT, IA - August 24, 2010

Scott County residents assembled Tuesday evening in downtown Davenport and nominated three independent Non Party Political Organization (NPPO) candidates to appear on the general election ballot for Scott County Supervisor. There are three open Supervisor positions.

John Riley (Blue Grass), Jesse Anderson (LeClaire), and John Greene (Davenport) were unanimously supported by the thirty-five precincts represented by fifty six people attending the convention.

The group also unanimously supported the title for the NPPO as Iowans For Accountability.  In addition, the Iowans For Accountability debated a county-wide issues platform. Agreed upon were the following primary issues:

* Increasingly high property taxes
* Corporate & individual welfare
* Personal property rights  
* Unchecked spending
* Transparent courts
* Cronyism

Organizers will file the paper work with the Scott County Auditors office, Wednesday, the final day for filing for county candidates.
