WATERLOO, IA – Today, Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) will continue his "Small Town Values Tour" with a stop in Mt. Vernon.  Braley is travelling across the First District visiting small towns and rural communities throughout the week to highlight his work with Republicans and Democrats to create jobs and strengthen the rural economy.

Braley, a native of small town Brooklyn, Iowa, in Poweshiek County, will visit numerous eastern Iowa towns over the course of the tour.  He will visit with local officials, tour towns’ business districts, visit local small businesses, and speak with residents.

“I grew up in Brooklyn, Iowa, where my mom was a school teacher and my dad worked at a grain elevator,” Braley said. “Growing up in a small town, I learned to value a hard day’s work and to help a neighbor in need. These are values I carry with me to this day when I go to work for Iowa in Congress.”
