Name: Pauline Chilton, Republican
Office/District: State Representative District 99
Why running for office: “Well I feel like it is my calling to do so. I’ve been living in Dubuque for the last 19 years. I’ve gotten to know the community professionally and also personally I’ve gotten involved in the community. I just felt led to step up and to serve in a public capacity.
“I care about our education system for our students. I care about the economy, making sure we have a strong economy for people to be able to work and have a good living and for businesses to thrive in the state of Iowa.”
