Issues To Consider
"Citizenship is a tough occupation that obliges the citizen to make his/her own informed opinion and stand by it."
- Martha Gellhorn
Our future depends upon our children and a workforce that is well educated. We support funding our local community schools to prepare our children for the jobs of the future. The cost of higher education must be addressed for a better tomorrow.
We strongly believe in climate change and the urgent need to address this global issue. Iowans deserve to breathe clean air, drinking clean water and keeping our soil free from unnecessary chemicals.
Crime & Justice
Democrats want safe communities and schools for every Iowan, regardless of income or social status. We support the fair and unbiased administration of justice and we proudly stand with our law enforcement officers and first responders.
There is no action that a citizen of the United States can take that has a more vital role in sustaining our democracy than voting. Democrats strongly believe that every legal vote should count and that the state government should do everything possible to ensure and protect that right.
