We are writing in support of Pat Heiden for Johnson County Supervisor.
While we are in Des Moines representing our neighbors in the Iowa Legislature, we grapple every day with the challenges facing Iowans. We hear stories from families struggling to protect vulnerable parents, with no where to turn for support. We recognize the fear in parents’ voices as they describe their struggle to secure access to needed services for their children with mental illness. We listen to rural residents struggle to balance community development and sustainable land management practices.
Making progress on these difficult issues requires all of us, at every level of government, to put aside personal agendas, reach out widely, and listen carefully. Pat Heiden has been that person, and done that work, in her professional career, and in decades of public service opportunities across Johnson County. We think she will be a valuable addition to the Johnson County Board of Supervisors.
