ISSUES

Putting Iowa Schools First

Public schools are what make our state great. That's why I'm fighting to keep public dollars in public schools and make sure our students and teachers have the resources they need to thrive.

Putting Power Back in the Hands of Workers

As member of UAW Local 405, I fought with my union brothers and sisters for a better contract last summer from John Deere. Now I'm ready to fight to restore collective bargaining rights and worker's right in the State House.

Happy Family
A Fair Tax Plan for Iowa Families

It's past time to level the playing field for Iowa's hardworking families. We need a tax plan that gives back to them-- not just the rich and well-connected. I'm running to look out for everyone in the State House, not just the most powerful.

 

“I’m running because workers need a voice in the state house. Workers' rights have been under attack in the past few legislative sessions, and it’s time someone stood up and said enough is enough.”
