“I believe that every Iowan deserves a fair shot at building a better future for them and their families. We need to do more to ensure that every community across our state has well-funded public schools, strong infrastructure, and access to affordable healthcare and mental health services. It’s time to level the playing field and give Iowa families the tools they need to succeed."

Education is one of the most important things that we fund as a state legislature. Public dollars belong in public schools and we need to be increasing resources for our students and teachers.
Every Iowan deserves access to quality, affordable healthcare and we need to work in the state legislature to pass funding that increases accessibility. Healthcare and mental health services are not only critical for individuals, but for our communities as a whole.
As Iowa grows and expands, we need be updating our aging infrastructure to meet the demands of modern life. We need have roads, bridges, housing, and transportation that meet the needs of Iowans today..
Everyone deserves the right to make their own health care decisions. We must protect Iowans' access to reproductive health care, including birth control, abortion, and IVF.
