I grew up in Sioux City, Iowa. I graduated high school, attended college here, and even played professional baseball for the Sioux City Explorers. I love this city through and through.
When my dear friend Representative Chris Hall decided to step down from representing Sioux City in the Iowa House, I knew it was time for me to step up.
Today I am announcing that I am running for Iowa House District 1, to represent my hometown of Sioux City! Chip in $10 to help jumpstart my campaign!
I see too many of my classmates and kids that grew up in Sioux City move away. I see too many families rely on donation boxes at gas stations, pancake breakfasts or GoFundMe accounts to pay for medical costs.
Folks in Sioux City deserve a Representative who will listen to them. Someone who will fight for them and their families. Someone who will always put them first before the out-of-state special interests.
As Iowa’s State Representative, I will fight for affordable health care, a quality education for every family in my district, and for an economy that works for ALL of us, not just those at the top.
Make no mistake: I will fight for my community every step of the way. Will you chip in $10 to help jumpstart my campaign? Every single dollar will make a huge difference in fueling our campaign forward!
The community of Sioux City has given me so much, it’s time for me to give back. People often say, change starts at the local level. Well, it’s time for me to step up to the plate for Iowa House District 1. Let’s go!
Standing Tall for All
I have been a Democrat for 59 years, so I will be voting the Democratic ticket. Sorry I do not have any money to donate. Dan
