Letter: Mathis supports tuition freezes
Sen. Liz Mathis, who is up for re-election in Senate District 34, has a Republican opponent who is not telling the truth about Mathis’ positive votes on tuition freezes. It’s public record that Mathis voted in 2013 (HF604), 2014 (SF2347) and 2015 (HF658) to provide adequate funding to ensure tuition freezes for Iowa State University, University of Iowa and University of Northern Iowa.
She was correct in not voting for a restrictive GOP amendment that would have prevented the Regents from doing their appointed job. Now her opponent is trying to mislead voters about her record. We are fortunate in Senate District 34 to have a senator who is as smart, hard working, respected and effective as Mathis. Don’t be misled. If you support education and keeping tuition low at our state universities, join me and vote for Mathis.
