As your State Representative, I will focus on serving the needs of our communities, not the special interests. I will put your needs before those of party leaders. In Des Moines, I will fight to:

*Bring good-paying jobs to our communities,
*Ensure our schools prepare our kids for the 21st century economy,
*Expand support for veterans and their families, and
*Stand up to special interests on behalf of seniors.
