The focus of my campaign remains getting Iowans back to work and balancing the state budget by reducing government spending. In the spirit of reducing government spending and protecting our liberties, I have decided to pursue my inclination to de-criminalize marijuana use and distribution in the state of Iowa if elected to the Senate. Let me be clear that changing Iowa’s law will not change the federal classification of marijuana. Further let me also state that I will not pursue a policy of “medical marijuana” that will pit the state law against the federal law and contribute to a California-like problem that comes with taxation and commercialization.

Board Candidate Questions County Energy Audit

What do Scott County, Iowa, and Chicago have in common?

Not much, except that a company from Chicago is about to get a $160,000 contract paid for by Iowa taxpayer dollars.

For what, you ask? An energy audit on the county’s eight facilities – including the brand new, state-of-the-art Scott County courthouse and jail.

Why does a two-year-old multi-million-dollar facility need an energy audit?

I doubt it does. However, the county had secured some grant money (a.k.a. Iowa taxpayer dollars), and when they found out the audit was going to cost less than expected on the two buildings that were originally slated for, they decided to spend the rest because they thought it was better to find a place to “spend, spend, spend” instead of patting themselves on the back for what could have been tens of thousands of dollars of savings to the state.
