From our inbox. A note from J.D. Scholten –
There have been a lot of “firsts” for me this month.
First, I decided to throw my hat in the ring for Iowa’s State House, to represent my home town of Sioux City.
After I jumped in the race, CNalysis (a nonpartisan state legislative election analysis group) moved this seat from “Tilt D” to “Lean D.” This is my first race where someone said I had the advantage!
I picked the perfect South Region of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, which is definitely a first.
I received my first suggestion for a campaign motto: “Bald and Involved!” This came from a bartender, while I was collecting signatures to get on the ballot, that “wasn’t into politics” but voted for me twice previously.
If we win, this will be my first time holding public office! With strong grassroots support, I know we can get out the vote and win in Iowa House District 1.
Standing Tall for All
