About three years ago, Gary Churnovic moved from the Chicago area and began working in Dubuque.
It didn’t take him long to determine diversity isn’t exactly in Dubuque’s DNA.
“It is very homogenous,” Churnovic said, recalling his initial impression of the city. “There isn’t a lot of inherent diversity built in here. … That can lead to like-minded thinking and similar experiences and opinions. I think Dubuque is steeped in that.”
