Cindy Axne Has a Clear Record of Showing Up and Fighting for Iowa
In her first term, Axne has shown her commitment to accessibility, independence from party, and fighting for Iowa priorities
In her first term in Congress, Cindy Axne has worked around the clock for her constituents in Iowa’s Third Congressional District – taking the time to listen to their concerns at over 60 town halls, fighting to secure important relief and economic support, and standing up to Washington when its policies were wrong for Iowa.
No matter what rejected Congressman David Young says in a desperate effort to get re-elected, Cindy Axne has shown up and fought hard for Iowa through two years of crises and delivered for her constituents:
When devastating floods hit southwest Iowa, Cindy Axne met with flood victims, heard their stories, and fought hard in Washington to secure $3 billion for flood relief in last year’s disaster aid bill.
When House leaders wanted to raise Congressional salaries and spend federal dollars on new computers, Cindy Axne stood up for Iowa taxpayers and spoke out against those fiscally irresponsible proposals.
Cindy Axne held 57 town halls in her first year in Congress, and visited each county in this district at least once a month, earning her the title of “Most Accessible Freshman Member of Congress” from the Town Hall Project.
“Time and time again, Cindy Axne has demonstrated her accessibility and commitment to the Iowans she represents in Congress. Throughout her first term, she has listened to them, stood up for them, and fought for them – and those she has helped won’t forget that when making their choice this fall,” said Ian Mariani, spokesperson for Cindy Axne for Congress.
