SIGN UP TO GET INVOLVED


Reynolds Education Crisis

This week marks one year since Governor Reynolds was sworn in to office, so the Iowa Democratic Party is taking a critical look at how she has handled the most pressing issues in our state. Legislators from all over Iowa, have stepped up to make sure the public is fully aware of the Reynolds Administration’s messed up priorities and mismanagement.

Today, Senator Joe Bolkcom of Iowa City is talking to Iowa voters about how Education has fared under the last year of Governor Reynolds’ leadership.

 

As Iowans, we’ve always been proud of our state’s foundation in education, but under Kim Reynolds’ leadership, our education budget has become the piggy bank for funding corporate and wealthy special interest giveaways…

Governor Reynolds has consistently puts her political donors ahead of what’s best for the people of Iowa, I’ve had enough. I know we can do better.”


Reynolds Rural Crisis

Legislators from all over Iowa have stepped up to make sure the public is fully aware of the Reynolds Administration’s messed up priorities and mismanagement. In the latest video in the Reynolds in Review series, Representative Todd Prichard from Charles City raises concerns about Reynolds’ rural priorities:

“We know that Governor Reynolds is not an effective advocate for rural Iowa, but I would take it one step further – I don’t think she understands rural Iowa.

Governor Reynolds doesn’t understand that her cuts to education mean the schools at the center of many of our rural communities will close because of consolidation. 

She doesn’t understand that her attacks on affordable health care and Medicaid are shrinking rural access to lifesaving care and taking even more good jobs from our rural communities.

It’s time for leadership that values and fights for the dignity of rural Iowa.”


Reynolds Budget Crisis

Legislators from all over Iowa have stepped up to make sure the public is fully aware of the Reynolds Administration’s messed up priorities and mismanagement, starting with Representative Chris Hall from Sioux City:

As the Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Committee, I’m a watchdog for your tax dollars. Over the last year, I have been appalled at the Reynolds Administration’s lack of responsible management, and, frankly, respect for the needs of the people of Iowa.

Back in 2013, Reynolds helped push through massive tax breaks for the wealthiest special interests and corporations with the promise that those dollars would trickle down to Iowa families. Fast forward to today, Reynolds has signed hundreds of millions of dollars in cuts to services like public schools, safety, and health care because her tax giveaways have not grown our economy as promised.
