Progress Iowa Executive Director Matt Sinovic issued the following statement in response to a new Morning Consult Political Intelligence survey showing Gov. Reynolds is the 7th most unpopular governor in America:
“Iowans deserve leaders who fight for working families. That means fully funding public schools, standing up for Iowans instead of selling us out to corporations, and protecting the rights of every citizen. Gov. Kim Reynolds has turned her back on us, and Iowans are paying attention.
“Since taking office Gov. Reynolds has created a workforce crisis and doubled down on the policies that created it, by giving the wealthy and corporations tax breaks, while taking that money away from our public schools, public safety, and health care services. She’s taken away workers’ hard earned benefits, sold out our kids with her disastrous education policies and outsourced healthcare to private companies.
“It should come as no surprise that Gov. Reynolds is one of the least popular governors in the United States. She uses divisive issues to distract us from the fact that she’s a corporate sellout who prioritizes her wealthy donors over hardworking families. Iowans want a leader who works to improve our lives, not someone who only wants to tear us apart.”
