Democrats set priorities at Off-Year Caucus ...

State Representative Bruce Bearinger of Oelwein was the guest speaker at the Allamakee Democrats’ Off-Year Caucus held March 30 at Robey Memorial Library in Waukon. “Jobs - Healthcare - Education continue to be  the priorities of the Democratic Party,” said Bearinger. He also explained that Democratic legislators continue to try to get their voices heard about the need for job training and better paying jobs, making healthcare affordable and accessible for everyone, fixing the Medicaid privatization situation, and investing in public schools and state universities. He also advised that efforts to address these “bread and butter” issues are thwarted since Republicans control the State Senate, State House and governorship. Submitted photo.
