ICDD names first ‘Nighttime Mayor’
Late night visitors to Iowa City have a new mayor.

The Iowa City Downtown District has named Angela Winnike the “Nighttime Mayor” to champion those businesses which are most active after the sun goes down. Per the district, Winnike will be tasked with “advancing business relations, fostering non-traditional events, supporting partnerships and advocacy.”

While ICDD officials say the concept has grown in larger areas across the globe, Winnike is the first to hold a nighttime mayor position in the Midwest. Winnike currently serves as COO for Java House.

The position is not affiliated with the city itself and Winnike’s salary is being paid by the ICDD.
