My commitment to the people in our community and always willing to listen to ideas and concerns. Thank you so much for the opportunity to serve! Cell no. 319-430-9793.
COVID remediation. Develop a long term matrix to eliminate the pandemic.

Investment and innovation in education. We cannot sit still, and we must get back to No. 1! We can start with 3% allowable growth plus 1.5% for local innovation in STEAM.

Democracy. Maintain integrity of our system while opening doors for eligible citizens to vote as easily as possible.
My number 1 priority and what will be the key component of our democratic system. Ease unnecessary regulations placed on voting for purely political reasons. Election Day should be national holiday and voting by mail should be universal.
