Letter: Vote Nate Boulton for governor

Let me tell you why I support Nate Boulton for governor of Iowa.

I have seen the majority party in Iowa drunk with power this last legislative session. This is not the Republican Party of the past. Passing ideology-driven, special-interest funded legislation doesn’t represent our Iowa values and hurts the residents of Iowa.

In the middle of all this, I’ve seen Boulton, fighting for the residents of Iowa. His focus is on Iowa’s future. Like I’ve heard him say, “Planning for the next 20 years, not the next 20 months.”

He believes in raising the state’s minimum wage to $15/hour, strong support for education, funding for mental health and women’s health, and protecting our environment. His fighting for the rights of middle-class working people is unmatched.

He has visited all 99 counties since his candidacy was announced last May. Rural roots in Columbus Junction, work ethic and personal drive define who he is.

I’m 56 years old and this is not the Iowa that I grew up in. I believe, as Boulton says, this election is a “fight for the soul of our state,” and I believe he has the leadership and vision to take Iowa forward, into the future.
