Kevin Warth announced Wednesday he is running for the Iowa Senate in 2020. Warth, a democrat, is running in District 44, which includes Louisa and Des Moines counties, and five precincts in Muscatine County.
“I’m running for the Iowa Senate because it’s time to turn the page. We need new leadership that is solution oriented and turns away from the partisanship that has come to dominate our political discourse,” said Warth in a press release. “I promise that I’ll go to Des Moines and do the work, to create solutions, and create greater opportunities for the people of Des Moines, Louisa, and Muscatine counties.”
Warth said he supports increasing the state’s investment in public K-12 schools, especially in small towns and rural areas. He believes in empowering Iowa’s teachers in the classroom and at the bargaining table. He wants to maintain affordability and fostering greater access at trade schools and two-year institutions like Southeastern Community College and Muscatine Community College. He understand this will help workers get the training and apprenticeships they need for today’s jobs.
