May 2017 Medicare for All Rally - Iowa City

With the passage of Trumpcare in the House, we must now take the fight to the Senate. We must protect The Affordable Care Act, a critically important step towards the goal of making healthcare available to all.

Come stand with us, May 20th at the Ped Mall in Iowa City!

Progressive leaders for Glasson

Members of Iowa’s Progressive Leaders for Cathy Glasson public Facebook group, accessed November 26, 2017 included Nora Taft.[4]

Glasson staffers

Glasson’s special assistant for communications, Eleanore Taft, said Glasson’s chance to win the election comes with her bold, progressive message.

“I think Cathy has been very clear on her positions and I think all of the positions will really help out a substantial portion of our population,” Taft said. “But I think her message resonates with working-class people, which are becoming a larger and larger segment of our population, and I think it’s because she’s addressing some of the major concerns that hold people back.”

Brian Shepherd, Glasson’s campaign manager, said her service to working people will help her win the nomination.

“We need bold, progressive change, and we can’t wait around and do incremental out-measures,” he said. “And too often people who are elected to office are really trying to water things down, and Cathy’s not a career politician, and she really wants to make change in Iowa.”[5]
