Support Grussing for House Dist. 7

October 24, 2014
Estherville News

To the Editor:

I am writing to express my support for the Democratic nominee for our District 7 seat in the Iowa House of Representatives, Dave Grussing, in the upcoming election on November 4th. I am a lifelong, registered Republican, but after hearing Dave's ideas about creating new jobs in rural Iowa, improving K-12 education, his outstanding support of our community colleges, and his dedication to veterans, I am convinced he is the best choice to vote for on November 4th.

Dave has obviously spent a fair amount of time considering the problems facing rural Iowa and rather than merely wringing his hands, has developed an actual plan to help deal with the ongoing depopulation of our small towns. His plan includes a series of graduated tax incentives for new businesses opening in communities of less than 25,000 population and the development of a skilled workforce through support of community colleges.

In addition, Dave has promised to maintain his focus on creating new jobs in rural Iowa rather than trying to score political points by wasting time on legislation that he knows either has no chance of passing or is blatantly unconstitutional. Dave served for 28 years in the US Army and Army Reserve so I am confident that his support of our veterans will be second to none. I feel Dave's emphasis on rural Iowa is exactly what this District needs and is why I have proudly chosen to support him.
