I support Cathy Glasson for Iowa Governor. Cathy has been an intensive care unit (ICU) nurse at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics for over 20 years, she is the president of Iowa’s SEIU 199 and lives in Coralville, Iowa.
I am supporting Cathy because she believes as do I, that the primary job of a Governor is to raise people’s standard of living.
As Cathy says,
“381,000 Iowa households are struggling to pay their bills because two-thirds of the jobs in our state pay less than $20 an hour. Parents working two and three low-wage jobs are still scrambling to come up with $900 each month for childcare, to pay the rent or mortgage, to put food on the table and gas in the car,” Cathy Glasson.
Cathy understands that we must provide for those who have the least. She understands that Iowa must increase the minimum wage and that Iowa must do more to make childcare affordable for all.
I support Cathy because she believes workers must have collective bargaining rights. She believes that it should be easy to form unions not harder.
“As a nurse, I believe healthcare is a right and holding Iowans’ care hostage is wrong,” Cathy Glasson.
Like she says, healthcare is a right, it is not a privilege for a few.
I support Cathy because she understands that education is a right and Iowa must fully fund our public schools, make community college free, and freeze tuition at Iowa’s public universities.
It is time for bold progressive ideas, please support Cathy Glasson for Governor and join the campaign.
