Reader supports Naeve
I am writing in support of Andrew Naeve, candidate for State Senate. You may be asking why — I have never written a letter, volunteered for, or donated to any candidate in my lifetime. However, I felt compelled to do all three because this is such an important election for the future of our state. This race may determine which party has the majority in the Iowa Senate.
I am supporting Andrew because he will do everything he can as a state senator to make Iowa and keep Iowa a friendly place to live and do business. Andrew also believes the state must keep its budget balanced. He knows that unneeded regulation bloats government and throws a wet blanket on prosperity.
Andrew is a young sixth-generation family farmer who grew up understanding the value of hard work, responsibility, and dedication to community. His parents taught him how a business works in the little town of Andover, Iowa. After high school, Andrew earned a degree in Farm Business Management and Finance at Cornell University while playing basketball. Since returning home, he served as member of the East Central School Board.
Andrew knows that personal freedom, individual responsibility and innovation that comes from the people, not government, is what made our country and our state great. Please join me in voting for Andrew this Nov. 6.
I feel this is an important election, and that our state, and country, are in need of strong direction.
Hart receives endorsement
We have known Rita Hart for almost 25 years. During that time it has been our pleasure to work and perform with her on the musical stage, interact with her family and dialogue with her on many important social issues including education.
Rita is a lovely singer who shares her talents with her church community. She is an intelligent and compassionate woman with the ability to balance the responsibilities of motherhood and work and maintain a great sense of humor. Rita cares deeply about the needs of others. She listens carefully and contemplates possible solutions to the problems. She respects different perspectives.
As a member of the senate we are confident that she would consider the needs of her constituents and work across party lines for the benefit of the citizens of eastern Iowa.
