We Live Here, Too

While I am disappointed we came up short on November 3, I am unbelievably proud of the campaign we ran to restore the voices of working people and rural spaces to the Iowa Statehouse. Thank you to the almost 6000 people who trusted us with their vote.

I am deeply indebted to and thankful for my family, my friends, and the countless volunteers and other supporters who powered our campaign this past year, particularly the work of our committee chair Deb Vaughan and campaign manager Søren Peterson.

It’s been an honor talking to neighbors across Benton and Iowa counties, learning what’s important to them, and understanding how we can make life better for everyone in our community. While we couldn’t knock every door as planned, we certainly would have under different circumstances.

I will continue to be an advocate for the issues important to those who live and work in House District 75 and across rural Iowa.

Never forget you matter. We matter. We live here, too. And the work to build back better in rural Iowa is just beginning.

Listen to Our Podcast

Listen to the We Live Here Too PodcastOne of the ways I’m advocating for rural issues is through the We Live Here, Too podcast that I’m co-hosting with Søren Peterson. The podcast is all about the people and spaces of rural America. We talk people, places, politics, and more, and we interview people from rural spaces right here in Iowa House District 75 and around the country to find out what matters to them. To us.
