The lost issue nationally this election season has been infrastructure. It was talked about a lot in 2016, but little progress was made. It’s not that people don’t care anymore, but there are many other issues that are ranking higher to voters nationally.
In Iowa, infrastructure is still very important. Representative David Young has been working towards improving it. He will continue to help Iowans have better infrastructure to suit their unique needs if reelected.
“We rely on our infrastructure to get our goods to markets, to visit our families, and communicate with customers. In Congress, I’ve been working to upgrade our infrastructure.”
As I drive across the Third District to meet with my bosses in our sixteen counties, I cross bridges in need of repair, roads under construction, and utility lines being replaced. When I’m in the more rural parts of the district, just like others, I sometimes have difficulty connecting with others over the phone because of poor phone service. And I hear from families who don’t have reliable internet at home or at their small business.
Many Iowans share with me the need for infrastructure improvements across the Third District. And their concerns spread from our roads and bridges to our rail lines, and access to the internet.
