Rachel Bly | Iowa House District 76
Why am I Running?
Nearly 20 years ago, as a young adult, I made a choice. I was an eager, politically active college graduate chasing a public policymaker’s dream in our nation’s capital. But I had other dreams too – of a family and a special place in which to marry and raise a child. I wanted a place with a strong economy, a commitment to civil rights, a vibrant arts community,and the best education system. I did not have to look far … I thought about who I am and what I stand for and I came home … to Iowa.
Today, I see many Iowans struggling to realize their dreams. Cities and towns are struggling to provide basic services. I am a candidate for House District 76 because it is time for Iowans to focus on what really matters – jobs, an educated work force, our children, and basic rights and services for all people. I am running because I know we can work together to find the common ground.
