"We need to work to make our public schools a top priority again, raise the minimum wage, keep training at Western Iowa Tech and higher education affordable and expand oversight of corporate tax giveaways." - Tim

Invest in Iowa schools
We need to responsibly invest in our kids, and make sure they recieve the world class education they deserve
Raise the minimum wage 
No Iowan working 40 hours a week should live in poverty
Grow Sioux City's Economy
We should target state incentives and encourage more investment in small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs
Local Control
Preserve our constitutional right to local control. Our communities have the right to make decisions that best fit them.
