Letter: Iowans did not secure a better deal

When Ashley Hinson spoke at the President Donald Trump campaign rally, she spoke of how hard she worked as a state representative to get Iowans a better deal, and how taxpayers were the winners.

What better deal did our children get? Bigger class sizes, fewer textbooks and less music/art are not a better deal.

What better deal did the senior citizens of Iowa get? Longer waiting lists for home delivered meals, fewer investigations of elder abuse, less response to nursing home complaints are not a better deal.

What better deal did taxpayers gets? Cleaner water? Better roads and bridges? Budget deficit?

What better deal did public employees get? Union busting, inferior health insurance, and insufficient budgets to do their jobs are not a better deal.

The better deal the constituents in District 67 need to be looking for is someone to replace her. Please look at a Eric Gjerde on his ericforiowa.com website.
