Auston is a military veteran who was born and raised in the Quad Cities.  After years of working with at-risk populations in New York and Chicago, he returned to the family, friends, and community that he calls home.

Currently working to fight human trafficking within the Quad Cities, he spends time with Davenport’s residents in their darkest moments. Working towards the goal of helping them heal has been the greatest privilege. 

After assisting and guiding survivors of human trafficking, sexual assault, and domestic violence, Auston knows that we could do better; that we deserve better.  Because of this, he is running for the Davenport City Council seat representing the 5th Ward.

We have so many things to be proud of in our community and many ways to grow.  He hopes you’ll join him as we look to the future and in celebrating Davenport’s rich, diverse culture and beautiful neighborhoods.
