Hinson understands 'women's issues'

It never ceases to amaze me, when I hear people discussing “women’s issues,” the conversation never covers issues that the women I know seem to care most about, namely, the economy, taxes, and, for those of us who own a business, the business climate in the state where we live and work. Ashley Hinson knows what women’s issues really are. Can we keep more of the money that we earn, or will the state tax it away? Do we have to spend time complying with useless and often redundant regulations? Or, can I spend more time with my family?

As a small-business owner, I can say the answers to these questions look very different today than they did just a few years ago. Iowa’s business climate has dramatically improved thanks to many of the changes made here in our state.

We need more people in Des Moines who understand what real “women’s issues” are and that’s why I’ll be voting for Hinson Nov. 6.
