Dear Editor,

I am writing because I believe Iowa needs to replace Senator Tom Harkin with someone who will continue to work for Iowa’s interests. This is why I’m supporting Bruce Braley for Senate. Since 2006 Braley has listened to his constituents, worked hard, and has delivered results.

Recently, Braley fought the ill effects of the sequester and ensured that a Dubuque air traffic control tower would remain open through 2013. Additionally, Braley sponsored bipartisan legislation that removed regulations damaging Marshalltown’s Lennox Industries manufacturing efforts. Braley also worked to prevent the closure of many post offices in rural Iowa, and succeeded in keeping them open.

With these and other accomplishments, it’s obvious to me that Bruce Braley works with Iowa’s best interests at heart. He knows the concerns of our diverse communities, and works to find common sense solutions to these concerns.
