Born and raised in Siouxland, it’s been the pleasure of my life to give back to our community. I have been fortunate to hold jobs that I enjoyed, that also provided service to our community -- like serving in the legislature for 16 years, and serving as the Director of the Sioux City Public Museum for the past 18 years. I have always prided myself on listening to my constituents, and working for the common good -- not for personal gain. To me, it's clear we need more of that at the state house right now.
In Des Moines, I’ll fight to:
Get Iowans back to work safely
Ensure safe and quality public schools
Protect Iowans with pre-existing conditions from losing healthcare coverage
Improve and expand the Hawki Children’s Health Insurance Program
