Zach Wahls will lead Iowa forward

Like you, I like good news from Congress — when problems are named by “we the people” and our legislators act with swift brilliance to correct them.

Zach Wahls is a responsive, wise man with a history of recognizing problems and doing something about them. I’ve watched him from a distance since coming to Iowa City: bringing compelling testimony for gender equality that helped correct this inequity here and throughout the United States and leading for change within the Boy Scouts of America so all can serve.

Wahls is evidence of what Iowa’s commitment to education accomplishes and he will continue to support and sustain this great dimension of Iowa life. His great gift is knowing us for who we are: broken and brilliant, vulnerable and victors, rich and poor, fragile and strong. We need him in the Iowa Senate. Vote for him in the primary on June 5 so he can help lead Iowa into the future.
