Thank you for your interest in my  re-election to the Iowa State Senate! Due to redistricting, the Senate District I represent will be changing. Although I still represent Howard, Chickasaw, and northwest Winneshiek County, the new Senate District includes Mitchell, Floyd, Worth, and eastern Cerro Gordo counties.

I have worked hard these past four years to keep the focus of the legislature on economic issues, including job growth and other important middle class family issues like preserving education standards and health care access for Iowa’s children and seniors. I will continue to work to preserve funding for basic education and for our community colleges so Iowans can have the job training they need. Lowering property taxes for our small businesses and homeowners will also be an issue I continue to fight for.

I want to hear your questions and concerns about our district. Please feel free to contact my office at (563) 203-7547 or email me here. Please give us a “like” on my new Facebook page too!
