A Commonsense Voice for Waterloo

I am running for city council to restore COMMON SENSE. Our council should be focused on supporting our first responders, bringing jobs into our community, and spending our tax money wisely. A balanced budget is very important. Within our city government, we must avoid divisive politics that plague the national scene. Our policies should support families and unify rather than divide. 

I grew up on the northeast side of Waterloo in Greenbrier. I'm proud to be a Waterloo Native and make this city my lifelong home.  I have fond memories growing up there, meeting the other neighborhood kids at the streetlight, playing kick- the-can down Greenbrier Road, and playing sports at Tibbet's Park. 

I'm the son of Kenny and Darlene Simon. My father was a UAW worker at John Deere for 42 years. He spent much of his career mounting the wheels on the tractor. He instilled within me a very strong work ethic, and my mom was a constant example of family devotion. 

I graduated from Columbus High School in 1984 and a short time after became a dental technician, eventually becoming the co-owner of Eclipse Dental in 2003. Eclipse Dental has grown from its 2 founders to employ 16 people today.  Running a successful dental lab has taught me teamwork, working towards common goals, financial responsibility, and good business sense. I always maintain a strong sense of duty for my employees' welfare. I will take my good business sense, fairness, and honesty to Waterloo City Council. 

Today I live in Ward 2 with my wife - and princess - Amy, who I absolutely adore. We have a daughter who attends Waterloo West, and I have 2 grown children and one grandchild. We also have a dog named Oliver.  My family means everything to me.  I love seeing them all grow and become the best they can be.  I am definitely a proud father and papa.


I enjoyed playing softball in our community for over 30 years, even winning several awards. Softball, other sports, and various leagues have been a great source of community and countless friendships.  In my spare time, you might find me golfing, fishing, or camping. 

I love Waterloo. It has been a 'Community of Opportunity' for me, and I want it to offer those opportunities for future generations. I want families to feel safe on their streets and in our parks. If we start down the road of commonsense ideas, we can create a thriving Waterloo that is here for future generations.
