Creating Jobs

“Getting Iowa Back to Work”

Iowans have endured the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. Unemployment rates are at an all-time high. Many families are struggling just to make it and have little hope for what the future will bring.

Scott will work with farmers and small business operators to create jobs and strengthen the economy.

Like many Iowans, I have worked at a number of jobs throughout the course of my life. From a production line in the automotive industry to framing houses to pay my way through college, from being a crane operator on a heavy highway construction crew to driving a big rig, I’ve done a little of everything.

Scott knows what hard work is all about. As your state representative, he will put Iowans back to work.

I understand the value of hard work, and know Iowans to have the strongest work ethic of anyone. I will work to create jobs at every level, from administrative work to manufacturing jobs to high-tech, renewable energy jobs. I work with small business owners every day. I know the small businesses on main streets in small towns are the backbone of our economy. I will work diligently to reduce burdensome regulations and to cut red tape so Iowa’s small businesses can once again grow and create jobs.

I will work to expand wind, biomass, ethanol, biodiesel, and other forms of renewable energy to spur economic development and to decrease our dependence on foreign oil.

I come from a family of teachers, nurses, farmers, and coal miners. My parents and grandparents taught me the value of a good education, hard work, and service to my community. I’d like to bring those same values to work for you as we rebuild Iowa’s economy.
