For far too long, Washington has overlooked rural America. Our farmers feed America and the world while our factories have built products that make modern life possible.
However, the policymakers in Washington have forgotten us. They have bowed to the special interests on Wall Street who have relocated factories overseas in the pursuit of cheap labor. With a decrease in commodity prices, high land and equipment costs, it is increasingly difficult for the next generation of farmers and the new farmers that desire to get into agriculture.
The policies that favor the interests of the east and west coast come at the cost of healthy rural communities, like those across Iowa. As your representative, I will work tirelessly to bring jobs back to Iowa and fight against the special interest policies that pose a threat to our very way of life.
We are blessed to live in Iowa. Midwestern Values, Strong Families, and Strong Communities make this a great place to live and raise our families. We work together to keep Iowa Strong.
