I will be supporting Dr. Christopher Peters in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District election.
As a student at the University of Iowa, I worry our current politicians ignore what is good for my generation. Having someone in Washington that is going to have my livelihood in mind when the campaign is over is something that I look for in a candidate.
Dr. Peters is a family man with three sons of his own. He places value in making sure those within my generation are not left with the over $20 trillion debt already accumulated. He wants to balance the federal budget so debt doesn’t continue to grow in size until my generation is left with the costly repercussions. Dr. Peters is not a career politician who is only in it for the money. He is there to make real changes for this country, including my generation.
Dr. Peters is the right candidate for southeast Iowa, and the right candidate for me.
