Nate Boulton makes campaign stop in Ottumwa
OTTUMWA, Iowa —
Democratic candidate for governor Nate Boulton was in Ottumwa Tuesday afternoon speaking with supporters and potential voters.
Boulton said his main priority if elected to office would be to take care of Iowa’s economy by encouraging wage growth in the state.
He says that current Governor Kim Reynold’s administration has attacked quality of life in the state for working families with a public service bargaining bill that took away from those that work in public service.
Boulton also responded to last Wednesday’s ICE raid at Midwest Precast Concrete in Mount Pleasant, Iowa.
“How far have we fallen from Governor (Robert) Ray’s welcoming Southeast Asian refugees into our state when other states were closing their doors. We’ve always been, as Iowans, a welcoming community to new Iowans, and unfortunately we’ve seen in the past 2 years, legislation that actually undermines the ability to do that; a bill that allows and really forces the local law enforcement to do the bidding of the Trump administration,” said Boulton.
