I am the Democrat running for Iowa House in Ankeny's District 37 because we need a positive, progressive vision for Iowa’s future.
Iowa was a place that was so proud of its public schools. But now our legislature underfunds and undermines our schools with inadequate state aid, attacks on educator’s rights to advocate for their profession, and schemes to divert public funds away from our neighborhood schools.
Iowa was a place that was proud of it’s ability to support small family farmers and small towns with good jobs. But now our state legislature adopts policies that favor large corporate interests and does too little to create good middle class jobs for our citizens.
Iowa was a place of fiscal conservatism where we were careful with the public funds used to provide the services Iowans needed. But now our legislature cannot seem to balance a budget and continues to hand out tax credits and breaks to the wealthy.
Iowa was always a place that believed in taking care of the beautiful land we were lucky enough to live in. But now our legislature fights against policies that promote high standards for protecting our land, air, and water.
Iowa was a place known for moderation, a true “purple” state. But now our state legislature enacts laws and policies that play to the most extreme elements of their base and donors.
WE MUST DO BETTER THAN THIS FOR OUR KIDS!
Elect me, and I will work hard to make Iowa a place to believe in.
