WATERLOO — Here in Congressional District 1, we have a choice for the Democratic Primary candidate. I support Thomas Heckroth because I believe his experience, both in the federal government and in the private sector makes him uniquely qualified to be our next congressman compared to the other candidates. In these times of challenging trade discussions, the fact Thomas has had to deal with international labor issues is a real plus.
He is committed to addressing the environmental challenges we face. He truly supports our efforts in finding effective alternative energy solutions. He understands these efforts are true opportunities for a cleaner environment and rewarding new jobs for many, many Iowans.
Thomas fully supports a strong public education system because he understands its value in a democracy. He also strongly supports organized labor and all hard-working men and women throughout Iowa. Thomas has worked on behalf of the American worker at every stop along the way of his professional career. No other candidate can make that claim!
He is the only candidate who can beat Rod Blum in November. Be sure to vote for Thomas Heckroth in the primary election June 5.
