On the Road with Pam

Our little nook in the Northeast part of Iowa has long been my home and I look forward to serving our communities as your senator. I have certainly spent time in many of the towns around Waverly, where I have lived with my husband Steve for many years, but I have never before visited as a candidate for the Iowa Senate. So, I have visited each town to get to know you all a little better. Come join me in my new series On the Road with Pam!

My first visit was to Lamont, near our beautiful Backbone State Park, where I stopped by the vibrant local coffee shop that is run by volunteers! Common Grounds Coffee, which has served coffee, food and fellowship to the community since 1997 is a project of Grace United Methodist Church.


Lamont, established as part of Buchanan county in 1852, has a vibrant history, especially since the Chicago Great Western Railway made it a stop in 1886! It has never stopped chugging along ever since and continues to be a place where people love to live.
