Indira Sheumaker’s absences raise questions about Des Moines’ council


Axios Des Moines: Des Moines Councilperson Indira Sheumaker has been absent from City Council meetings and workshops since May 23, when she last participated via phone. Public records requested by Axios show she responded to fewer than 10 of about 400 emails using her city account between May 23 and June 30. The absences have a negative effect on the ward she was elected to represent, multiple city and neighborhood officials said. Despite repeated attempts to reach her, Sheumaker hasn’t responded to Mayor Frank Cownie or City Manager Scott Sanders, Sanders told Axios last week.
