And here is my offer: I will extend my hand to anyone at any point during the session and throughout the campaign who wants to talk about the issues and work together to find solutions for our great state.
Voting for a third party come November is not a symbolic gesture as Schmidt would have you believe. It is a vote in the name of progress and opportunity for everyone in a world where a politicians allegiance is only to their community; and that’s why I’m an Independent running to represent the voters of Iowa House District 19.
There was a time when I was a member of a party. When I first registered to vote at 18, the world and the political landscape were very different. Republicans still looked to work with Democrats. They weren’t best friends, but there was a sense of partnership.
