Speak out, caucus for what's important to you

My wife, Jan, and I went out to eat recently. There was a table with several young women nearby, and I noticed they were looking at us. When they got up to leave one of them came over and said to me, “I like your hat.” It was a blue cap that reads, “Immigrants Make America Great.”

I told her Jan gave it to me last summer, and it has become my headwear of choice. She responded positively and I thanked her.

Whenever we are out in public there is rarely a day that a clerk, server or someone else, doesn’t make a comment on it. I’ve begun to realize that this seems to be the general consensus, and I’m glad. After all, we are all descended from immigrants.

I’m not a one policy voter, but this is important. Call or email your senators and congresswoman about this and other matters that are important to you.

Don’t forget, this Saturday is the off year caucus for Linn County Democrats. Come on out 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. — the location depends upon your Iowa Senate district — and make an impact on the platform.
