It's not your father's Des Moines anymore! If it's been awhile since you've been there, you're in for a real treat.  It's a hip, lively city voted one of the top places to live for job opportunity and quality of life. And, of course, we know the schools are the best!

Much of the reason, our hometown has become such a cool place to live is due to the leadership of Mayor, Frank Cownie (Class of '66) and his partner, our own Tina Manbeck.
