To the editor:
As a resident of Stratford who has been following the race for Iowa's new 4th Congressional District, I encourage voters to support Rep. Steve King.
Rep. King has been clear about his plan for the 4th District and for America. King knows if we are to restore our American Dream we must rein in Washington's out-of-control spending and balance our budget.
As a self-made small businessman, King knows what it takes to create jobs in our Iowa small towns. He spent his career building his business, meeting payroll and balancing his company's books. Washington could use less "tax and spend" liberals and more businessmen like Steve King.
Rep. King has been a strong voice for Iowa agriculture. He introduced the Protect Interstate Commerce Act amendment to the Farm Bill to stop liberal states like California from burdening our Iowa farmers with onerous regulations. Rep. King knows farmers, like business, need less red tape and government intrusion. Government should create a stable environment not a volatile marketplace with layers of government red tape.
Congressman King also has a strong pro-life record, defending the lives of vulnerable unborn children.
Rep. King has been Iowa's voice of common sense in Washington since 2002. I'm proud to finally have the chance to vote for him in the 4th District.
