Why running for office: “You know, I really want to contribute something and I’m capable of doing so. So, I just want to help people and do my part.
“A couple of issues that concern me are services for our aged population in Iowa as well as the Medicaid fiasco. So, the medial portion of society going on in Iowa, that’s one of my big concerns. Healthcare across the board.
“I think we need to support our employees and our unions to keep the workforce vibrant and alive here.”
