CLINTON — Iowa Sen. Rita Hart (D-Wheatland) will host multiple town meetings on jobs next month in her Iowa Senate district.
Hart is encouraging people to bring suggestions to the meetings.
“This is a discussion and I hope people will arrive with some suggestions,” Hart said. “The best ideas often appear when we get together and listen to each other.”
The Clinton meeting will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. Nov. 14 at the Clinton Public Library.
“Our part of Iowa has opportunities for real growth,” Hart said. “We need to work together to promote small business development, entrepreneurship and educational opportunities. That’s how we will increase the number of higher wage jobs in our community.”
Hart is the former chairwoman of the Senate Economic Growth committee.
“One of the Legislature’s most important jobs is to invest in long-range economic development that ensures future growth and prosperity across all of Iowa,” Hart said. “At the Clinton library meeting, I’ll be listening for ideas that will help create jobs and grow our local economy.”
