Letter to the editor – Steve Haupert

To the editor,

This letter is being written in support of David Weaver, who is seeking the District 47 seat of the Iowa House of Representatives.

David spent his childhood years working with his parents and grandparents on the family farm near Rippey. David is a graduate of East Greene High School and Central College.

After graduating from college, David spent several years teaching English in Japan before returning to the family farm to help his parents and start a family. David’s love for agriculture was strengthened by his many years in 4-H, which to this day has given him a sense of conviction and a strong moral direction.

David’s teaching experiences have given him an insight and passion for what is needed in providing and preparing our children and young adults for the future. David understands our most valuable resource is our youth and the importance of moving Iowa back to being a leader in public education. David would also like to restore collective bargaining to Iowa’s employees and teachers, rescind the privatization of Medicaid, and ensure that the state’s budget is constructed with a transparency that reflects all Iowans values. He understands the need for more mental health funding and the need for more patient placement facilities.

I have known David and the entire Weaver family for many years. David’s strong family values and moral direction are what we need more than ever. Join with me in voting for, and electing David Weaver to the Iowa House of Representatives.

Steve Haupert, Jefferson
