“It is imperative, during these times of budget difficulties that the state of Iowa be represented by people who will show fiscal responsibility toward our taxpayers. Our children and grandchildren should not have to worry about being straddled with excessive debt, as has happened in the past two election cycles,” De Boef said.
De Boef will focus on innovative ways to bring new, good paying jobs to the state as well as ways to reduce the burden on taxpayers.
“Our state has many things to offer to make us competitive in attracting good jobs to Iowa. One of these is the fact that Iowa is a Right-to-Work state. One liability is the high property tax paid in our state by commercial users. In addition, actions taken in the past several years have created an environment that will be increasingly hostile toward economic growth if it is not reversed in the very near future ,” she pointed out.
“I plan on continuing my record of reducing taxes on Iowans, increasing accountability toward educational excellence, and supporting traditional marriage as well as the sanctity of human life,” De Boef continued.
De Boef has been married to her husband, Harold for 38 years and is a partner in their farming and tub-grinding operation. They reside in the rural What Cheer area. They are parents to four adult children and grandparents to 13.
DeBoef was first elected in the November, 2000 general election and represents all of Keokuk County, most of Iowa County and parts of Poweshiek and Tama counties.
