I would work to ensure that the laws already on the books are universally enforced. I support equal pay for equal work. I have seven granddaughters and want them to have the same opportunities and same compensation as their male counterparts.
Iowa should have policies that would maintain our present hospital system. The importance of having universal internet access has been brought to the forefront with Covid-19. Those with internet services have access to a wide array of medical professionals through tele-medicine and tele-psych. Iowa should work for universal access to broadband internet. Iowa should maintain and expand Integrated Health Services. Iowa should offer a tuition reimbursement program for health care professionals in exchange for practicing in underserved areas of the state.
Industry leaders are telling me that they have difficulty finding qualified workers. They need a workforce that is motivated to learn and will show up for work on time and will show up every day that they are scheduled to work. I would support anything that would help that to happen. I support community colleges and the work that they do. I will not support legalizing the recreational use of marijuana.
I support changing the law to allow county sheriffs to use their discretion in issuing permits for concealed carry. I support programs for gang prevention and anti-bullying. I support improving our current mental health system.
I would work to ensure that the present laws are universally enforced. I keep an open mind and am always willing to listen. My door will always be open. If I am made aware of problems not addressed by current legislation, I will work to address them.
