I graduated from South Sioux City High School. I received a degree at Morningside College and a Masters Degree at the University of South Dakota. I have been an educator in the Sioux City Schools. I worked with students that had special needs. I now work in Nebraska with high school aged students. I am married and have one daughter and two grandchildren. 

I served 30 years in the 185th Iowa Air Guard. I also served 16 years on the Board of Education in South Sioux City. I have served on the SSC Park and Recreation board and our Community Foundation. The city council is a very important part of our community. It provides us an opportunity to have our voices heard at the local level of government. I believe it is very important to give back, so I am truly excited about being a part of the process of moving our community forward. I am truly honored to serve the people of South Sioux City.

Bruce DavisCouncilman Bruce Davis
Hello, my name is Bruce Davis and I am pleased to be one of your South Sioux City Council members. My wife Bridget and I reside at 519 Broadmoor Drive in South Sioux City. I have lived in South Sioux City since 1965, graduated from South Sioux City High School in 1975, Wayne State College in 1979 and the National School of Banking in 2001.
My previous city experience involved being a council member from 1984 -1994, Mayor 1994 -1998, Council member from 1998 -2004 and most recently a Council member from 2010 to the present. I love being a voice for the citizens and planning for a very secure financial position for the City of South Sioux City. As a banker for over 25 years I believe prudent financial decisions pave the way for a better community.
Currently I own a Marketing and Consulting Company called Infiniti Marketing Group so my schedule allows me to be deeply involved in our city government. Please feel free to contact me at City Hall - 494-7500 or a 712-490-0351. If you have time we'd love to see you at a council meeting. The meeting date and times are included in this website.

Jason Bowman
Councilman Jason Bowman
My name is Jason Bowman and I have served the citizens of South Sioux City for the past 20 plus years as a member of the City Council.  I was first elected in 1996 to a four-year term, and have been re-elected to serve in this capacity each time I ran for re-election to do so.  I married my best friend Erica in 1991 and have been blessed with two amazing children, Morgan 17 and Carter 14.  Erica is a schoolteacher at Lewis and Clark Elementary and I am a licensed Journeyman electrician and a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 231.  We chose to come home to South Sioux City in 1992 upon being honorably discharged from a four-year enlistment in the US Navy.  I graduated from South Sioux City High School in 1998 and together we knew that South Sioux City would be a great community to raise a family, so together with Gods help this is what we are doing.
South Sioux City is a tight community with a very progressive history as being a leader within the state.  The council is made up of some of the greatest people I know and together we have lowered the cities property tax asking at least 18 times over the past 20 plus years.  The city staff and employees take much pride in our city and continue to go the extra mile daily!  Quality of life is a cardinal rule is much more than a commercial within the community and in my opinion, there is not a better place on this earth to call home!  Thank each of you for entrusting me to be your city government representative!
