FIGHT FOR RURAL & SMALL TOWN ECONOMIES
The legislature isn’t doing enough to support rural and small town communities. As your state representative, I will fight for businesses and employers to come to our part of the state -- not just Des Moines. Our constituents deserve the same type of employment opportunities as folks who live in metropolitan areas.
MAKE HEALTHCARE AFFORDABLE AND ACCESSIBLE
Healthcare shouldn’t be a privilege of the few, but something every family can access at an affordable cost. I’ll fight to lower prescription costs, protect Iowans with pre-existing conditions, and de-privatize Medicaid. Please always feel free to reach out with your own healthcare stories -- those stories help us craft policies that can impact real families.
FULLY FUND OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Every child deserves a world-class education. Period. It shouldn’t matter whether you grow up in a city, suburb, or rural community -- we need strong public schools everywhere. I will fight to fully fund our public schools, and work to give teachers and students the resources they need to be successful.
PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT
We all want clean water, clean air, and a better world for our children and grandchildren. Democrats and Republicans need to work together, and find common sense solutions, to creating a more sustainable Iowa -- and along the way, working to create more jobs in wind, solar, and other renewable energy industries.
