Sue's Priorities 


Fully Fund Our Public Schools

As a teacher, I know how much our schools struggle when politicians in Des Moines don’t give teachers the resources needed. Children are our future, and we should invest in them that way. In the Iowa House, I will work to fully fund public education and make sure our teachers have what they need to succeed.

Make Healthcare Affordable & Accessible

We have to make healthcare more affordable and accessible for families all across Iowa, especially here in Marshall County. I have two sons who are type 1 diabetics. Luckily, I have been fortunate enough to have insured through my healthcare plan until they were 26. My son, Mike (28), however is no longer part of my plans. In the past year, he changed jobs a couple times and, in result, had to pay $300 per vial of insulin (about two weeks worth) when he was between jobs.


Focus on Economic Development

I will work across the aisle to ensure our communities prosper with good paying jobs with benefits that can support a family. It’s my number one priority to keep families here in our community -- and that starts with keeping good jobs in town.


Invest in Renewable Energy 

As a state, we have a tremendous opportunity to lead the nation in renewable energy -- all while creating good jobs for Iowans everywhere. It’s good for our environment and it’s good for our economy. Investing in renewable energy, and job training for these 21st century jobs, is crucial for Iowa’s future.
