Dear Editor,

     What do we Iowans of the first district need in our Congresswoman? We need someone honest, prepared and who leads with integrity. We need Abby Finkenauer. 

She has been put to the test and has time after time proven to us that she will put Iowa first. During COVID-19, she has provided support to veterans and child care workers, provided relief to borrowers of rural development loans, and allowed PPP loans for small businesses to be used for purchasing personal protective equipment. To be completely honest, it’s been a really difficult year, and it’s hard to see a brighter end in sight. It hasn’t made our lives any easier to see politicians sitting idly by: Abby Finkenauer hasn’t. After the derecho, she jumped into action to fight for aid for our state and deliver supplies. She shows up when things get tough, and that’s exactly what we need more of in Congress today.?? 

On November 3, we need to make the right choice for the First Congressional District of Iowa and re-elect Abby Finkenauer. With more tough times ahead, we need leaders that we know are dependable and will show up. Congresswoman Finkenauer has proven herself to be that leader, and she has certainly earned my support and vote.?
