My wife, Kate, and I love this state. I grew up here, a fourth generation Iowan. Kate is from California. After nine years in the Twin Cities, we made a conscious decision to move home to Iowa to raise our kids. We have not been disappointed.
Iowa has provided our children a world of opportunities. Excellent schools. Youth sports. Youth choir at church. Raising chickens and participating in 4H.
Good schools, good land, and strong communities have made Iowa a great place to live. But we cannot take our future for granted.
When I was first elected, I never expected that Cedar Rapids and other communities would be devastated by the floods and tornadoes of 2008, but in the Iowa Legislature, I was able to help our communities recover from those disasters, stronger, safer, and more sustainable than before.
We need to preserve Iowa’s quality of life, safeguard our people and our property, and invest responsibly to make Iowa even better in the future.
