On the Issues with Pam

Rural Vitality

  • I will support our family farmers and all those who make our communities thrive by advocating for investment in job training and apprentice programs at our community colleges. 

  • We can all make meaningful efforts to support our Main Street businesses, and I will advocate for business owners and entrepreneurs in this district.

  • Working with city and state officials, I will work to make fast and reliable broadband accessible to our homes and businesses.

 

 

Education

Iowans have long taken pride in our top-quality public education. However, over the last several years we have slid from being number one in the nation. As an experienced educator, I will work with teachers and administrators to help rebuild Iowa as a leader in education.

Health 

  • Let's work together to increase access to top-quality physicians, facilities and emergency services.

  • We need to improve mental health systems, including services for our children.

  • The privatization of medicaid has been detrimental to our rural hospitals and communities.
