Candidate for U.S. House of Representatives for Iowa's 2nd District Liz Mathis joined us for lunch, and her visit was streamed live - you can watch here.
Democratic candidate Mathis is a former journalist and nonprofit leader. In 2011, Liz was elected to the State Senate representing parts of Linn County. As Senator, Liz has spoken up for families struggling with the state’s Medicaid program and created countless measures that focused on children, Iowa’s economy and educational growth. As a member of the Agriculture Committee, Liz has worked to help Iowa family farmers and farming communities. And she’s assisted Iowa families and businesses struggling to recover from COVID-19 and during the recent derecho disaster, she helped them find a warm meal, seek resources or get back on their feet.
We had the Republican candidate, Ashley Hinson, speak to our club earlier this year.
