I’d like to commend Kim Pearson, who is running for the Iowa House in House District 42 (Southeast Polk County and part of Southwest Jasper), to you. Kim is a follower of Christ, homeschooling mom, wife of a VA doctor, member of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Des Moines, a Tea Partier, law school graduate, and a grassroots conservative activist.
She describes herself:
I am not part of the political establishment. I am, however, a part of the great patriotic awakening that is happening across our State and Country. I am a wife and mother who is passionate about God, family and our country.
She has lived in the district for two years having moved from West Des Moines. She had no plans to run for office, but her experience participating for the Polk County GOP platform committee, frustration with having her views heard or represented by State Representative Geri Huser, and concern about the liberal fiscal and social polices coming from the Statehouse led her to throw her hat in the ring.
Representative Huser has been a “blue dog” Democrat on some labor issues, but is pro-abortion rights and demonstrated this last session that she is not committed to traditional marriage.
Kim however stands for small government, asserting Iowa’s right to say no to federal mandates, elimination of our state’s new debt under Governor Chet Culver, reducing our tax burden, the sanctity of human life, traditional marriage, parental choice in education, private sector job growth, Iowa’s Right to Work law, and the enforcement of immigration laws.
Check out Kim’s website, read where she stands on the issues, connect with her on Facebook, and follow her on Twitter (we need to encourage her to use it). If you live in her district, she does have a primary opponent on June 8th so come out to put her in the position to unseat Representative Huser.
