Vote for Heckroth

BETTY HACKETT

WATERLOO — Thomas Heckroth is my choice as the Democratic candidate for Congress from Iowa’s 1st Congressional District.

Thomas firmly believes that comprehensive, affordable and accessible health care is a right for all Americans and not simply for the privileged few. Our current congressman, Rod Blum, has voted to take health care away from thousands of Iowans. He must be replaced!

As a life-long nurse here in Waterloo, I understand how critical it is for Iowans to have access to quality and affordable health care. We cannot afford to regress to the way it was prior to the Affordable Health Care Act, which is what Congressman Blum and this administration in Washington is wanting us to do. Thomas will fight to protect our health care rights and to make sure mental health care parity is a key component to our health care system.

I will be voting for Thomas Heckroth in the primary election June 5. I would encourage you to do the same!

Norris for Governor

JUANITA WILLIAMS and DENNIS HARBAUGH

WATERLOO — John Norris rises to the top among Democratic candidates running to unseat Governor ‘Red Ink’ Reynolds.

John is a proven progressive, having marched with Cesar Chavez and Paul Wellstone for worker rights. His executive leadership experience far exceeds that of other candidates, having served as Gov. Vilsack’s chief of staff and later chief of staff at the US Department of Agriculture, where he successfully directed over 100,000 employees.

John shaped Iowa’s successful renewable energy policies on the Iowa Utility Board, then was tapped by President Obama to serve as a Federal Energy Commissioner.

But what sets John apart is his passion for rural Iowa. He was born on a family farm in southwest Iowa and once owned a main street business in tiny Greenfield. John easily talks commodity prices with farmers and connects with main street folks in small towns.

To beat Reynolds in November Democrats need a passionate, pro-choice progressive from rural Iowa who can match her rural roots and defy the “liberal elite” label.

On a personal note, we know John to be honest and compassionate. He’ll be a governor you can be proud of. We strongly encourage you to vote for John Norris this Tuesday, June 5.

Vote Heckroth

WATERLOO — We are fortunate to have good choices in the Congressional District 1 Democratic primary. However, Thomas Heckroth stands out well above the others. My wife and I don’t always agree on politics, but after hearing Heckroth speak on two separate occasions we definitely agree he is the absolute best choice to defeat Rod Blum. He presents definitive plans to bring effective representation to District 1. His experience working with our great Senator Harkin and President Obama will deliver results supporting farmers and all our hard-working people.

Heckroth has the energy, character and integrity to achieve results. He has spoken in every corner of District 1, most more than once. Sometimes he has been the only one to show up when all candidates were invited. That commitment is what it will take to make effective representation for District 1. Character and integrity are sorely lacking in Washington. Character counts! Integrity matters! We strongly believe you will never regret your vote for Heckroth because it will be a vote for change with character and integrity. Heckroth is the best candidate to defeat Rod Blum. Please give serious consideration to Thomas Heckroth—Heck Yes!
