Seeking an eighth term representing the Dubuque community in the Iowa House of Representatives, Democrat Chuck Isenhart possesses a broad knowledge of the legislative process and how to navigate government effectively.

As one of the Statehouse’s strongest advocates for state water quality and environmental issues, Isenhart provides a needed voice in the strongly held Republican landscape of the Legislature and, therefore, earns the endorsement of the TH Editorial Board.

Who Knows

Exactly. What has he done of substance?

My Thoughts

This is embarrassing for the TH. Have they talked to any legislators in Des Moines about Mr. Isenhart's "voice" and/or contributions. He sits in the back row and never sponsors or proposes meaningful legislation. He is abrasive and does NOT represent Dubuque very well. To tie the closing of Fulton School to anuything other than the failure of maintaining a student-age population in the area of the city it resides is dubious at best.


What else from a liberal Dem rag like the TH???
