Under the Golden Dome, Too – An Amazing Opportunity

Upmeyer Chamber

It is a privilege to represent so many great communities in North-Central Iowa and I often think about what can be done to help these communities thrive. That has always been a way for me to focus my energy in the Legislature.

Town festivals celebrating our communities’ rich and unique heritages are well underway. County fairs have kicked-off across the state showcasing our youngest residents’ commitment to the backbone of our economy…Iowa agriculture. It’s certainly hard to think of a better place to be than Iowa in the summertime.
