He has youth, fresh energy, intelligence and passion to represent all of us in Iowa and America. 2. He is a kind and caring person who will listen and speak for us. 3. He speaks from the heart. … Continue reading LETTER: Support Scholten for Congress

Pigeon Poop On A Pump Handle

There are a lot of people in my Congressional district, represented by Steve King, that have wanted to vote him out of office for some time. The district is so heavily weighted partisan Republican, however, that King could embarrass us with his toxic ideology and still be re-elected. The district was considered safe for Republicans … Continue reading Pigeon Poop On A Pump Handle

Sometimes a particular candidate stands out as a person of integrity

Today I want to encourage all the people of Sioux Center to cast their vote on November 6 for J.D. Scholten. Perhaps that is difficult for some to think about in light of the fact that Mr. Scholten is a Democrat, but I want to offer a different perspective for you. Politics is not a … Continue reading Sometimes a particular candidate stands out as a person of integrity

Letter: Vote for J.D. Scholten

My family immigrated from Europe over 250 years ago. It is truly American and very diverse. I grew up on an Indiana farm, but had family come to Indiana from Virginia in the 1880’s. They fought on both sides of the Civil War. My husband grew up in Virginia. Yet we would never fly or … Continue reading Letter: Vote for J.D. Scholten

J.D. Scholten offers a new road

When my neighbor told me he was worried about how his garden would fare while he was out of town I told him not to worry, I would take care of it. I said it without thinking, because no matter how long I spend in California, I will always be an Iowan. I was lucky … Continue reading J.D. Scholten offers a new road

Letter: Scholten epitomizes North Iowa

Following the recent passing of my aunt (a native of Mason City), I began looking through family photos and fondly remembering my Dad’s stories about growing up in Iowa. The warm feelings faded as I was struck with the frustration that these experiences are in stark contrast to Rep. Steve King, to his divisive rhetoric, … Continue reading Letter: Scholten epitomizes North Iowa

Letter: King is no friend of agriculture

Earlier this year an important issue with organic livestock, USDA National Organic Program Animal Welfare Law, was in the review and public comment process. Our farmer-owned marketing cooperative, Organic Valley, which I am a member of, asked its farmers to contact their U.S. senators and representatives in regards to this legislation. There were over 40,000 … Continue reading Letter: King is no friend of agriculture

Letter to the Editor: ‘We need someone who will truly work for us’

As a fourth generation livestock and grain farmer working the land my great-grandfather bought in 1921, I am greatly worried about the state of our farm economy. I’ve had the same inefficient representative in Steve King for 16 years. So far as I know, he’s done nothing for farmers. We have fewer seed companies and … Continue reading Letter to the Editor: ‘We need someone who will truly work for us’

Iowans deserve better than King

To the editor: FACT: White supremacists include KKK and neo-Nazis. Our federal congressman, Steve King, has promoted a well-known neo-Nazi, Mark Collett, on Twitter. My three uncles: Donald, Marion and Loren, fought Nazis in WWII. Donald received a Silver Star for saving two men caught in a crossfire, and Marion received a Purple Heart when … Continue reading Iowans deserve better than King
