(Some of) My Top Priorities
Increased funding for K-12 Public Schools
Public education is the great equalizer. No matter what type of situation a child is born into, a strong public school system that provides a quality education can change the trajectory of a child's life forever.
Returning Collective Bargaining Rights
People deserve jobs with good pay and good benefits. Period.
Raise the Minimum Wage
COVID-19 has highlighted the need for raising the minimum wage. Minimum wage workers have been asked to risk their health bagging groceries, delivering food, or working at the gas station while our legislature suspended their legislative session due to health concerns. We need a raise for our essential workers.
Make Healthcare Affordable
When people are having to choose between groceries for the week and their prescription drugs, we have a crisis here in Iowa and our country. We have to work to find a way to bring down the cost of healthcare as a whole.
