Kim Reynolds’ tenure as governor has slowed Iowa’s economy to a standstill. Incomes are flat, our state’s revenues are shrinking and I cannot remember our state’s future ever looking so bleak. We need new leadership with the experience and values to solve this mess so Iowa can continue to be a successful and prosperous place to live.
That’s why I’m voting for Fred Hubbell to be our next governor. I’ve known Hubbell for over 30 years, working with him in the 80s when he ran Younkers and when he was interim director of economic development to clean up the film tax credit scandal that was costing Iowans tens of millions of dollars. I’ve seen firsthand his ability to manage enormous budgets and know his commitment to ensure every taxpayer dollar is spent wisely.
I normally don’t make endorsements in primaries, but this election is different. We need a candidate who can beat Gov. Reynolds in the fall and get our state back on track and Hubbell is the person who can do that.
I’ve endorsed his campaign because I’ve seen his ability to deliver results and I know he’ll do the same as governor.
