Thank you for visiting my web site. I am a state senator from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, representing portions of southwest, southeast, and northeast Cedar Rapids. On November 6, 2018, with your help and support, I was re-elected by my biggest margin yet, 17,912 to 9,407, or 64% to 34% of all ballots cast.
First elected to the Iowa House in 2002, I have come to understand that government is not a debating society, or a marketing gimmick, or a popularity contest. It is a practical tool we have to help real people and solve real problems.
In the Iowa Legislature, I have worked with citizens and legislators across party lines to pass legislation to assist Iowans with flood recovery and invest in flood protection; to expand solar power, wind energy, and renewable fuels for jobs and the environment; to invest in soil conservation and clean water; to strengthen education from early childhood to college and job training; to provide health insurance for children and working families; to support senior citizens and veterans; to promote better health including mental health; and to advance public safety – government’s first responsibility.
At this web site, you can find information about my background, my public schedule, and current issues, along with my social media postings through Facebook and Twitter. You can also find ways to participate in our democracy and help promote better government that works for all of us. Working together, with a renewed spirit of citizenship, we can make Iowa even better.
