Elections should be about forward-thinking ideas – a vision for where we want our state to be and enacting policies that will work to get us there. We need elected leaders who are willing to engage in hard conversations across party lines with each other and with the people in our communities. Honest conversations – built from trusted partnerships – are needed now more than ever as we seek to solve some very big challenges and harness tremendous opportunities. 

My focus, as always, is on ensuring economic security and economic opportunity for everyone, in every community across Iowa. To do that, we need to invest in Iowans again so that everyone has the tools they need to get ahead.
