Gjerde will fight for people of District 67

As a resident of House District 67, I’m concerned about the consequences the upcoming election will have for all Iowans.

Eric Gjerde believes all Iowans deserve health care, including those with ongoing medical conditions, mental illness, physical and mental disabilities and pre-existing conditions. Healthy Iowans improve the quality of life for all and lower the cost of health care for all.

Eric wants students to have above average educational opportunities in K-12 schools, community colleges and at the university level. This will ensure Iowans will have the skills to function competitively in the 21st century and beyond. Eric supports re-establishing collective bargaining for hard working Iowa families.

The excessive tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy by this Republican legislature have cost our state dearly and will continue to drag our state down. Ashley Hinson voted for this destructive budget and irresponsible tax breaks.

The choice is clear.
