About Me

About charley

I am a political outsider.  I’ve never held elected office before.  I am currently a lawyer and businessman with more than 34 years working in the private sector.  I decided to run because, even after Trump’s successes and the Covid disaster, our state and federal government are still not listening to the people.  They don’t “get it” and they refuse to “get it.”  Rural Bremer, Chickasaw and Floyd counties, once vibrant and prosperous, are now growing in generational poverty.  Great manufacturing jobs are exported; meanwhile our farmers suffer from a meddling but unhelpful government and from having to do business with remote, faceless, rapacious, market-manipulating multi-nationals.  Our Main streets are empty; our best and brightest young adults are lured out-of-state by high-dollar positions with which we cannot compete.  Now record inflation and a steady flow of imperial edicts from Washington are threatening even further decline.  It’s time for someone to yell “knock it off.”

What I Will Fight For

The Economy

We need to cut the red tape and promote economic development in our district. Right now, the state doesn’t focus on our district like it should. They don’t make it easy or productive for community members to pursue business opportunities in rural Iowa, even when these activities would clearly benefit the local economy. I will make sure we have a seat at the table and that our voices are heard.


I plan to fight government overreach. Right now, the leaders of the far left are imposing outrageous, intrusive, and counter-productive policies across the county. I've practiced law for more than three decades, and I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Constitutional Conservative. I know what they are up to; I promise I will call them out on their schemes to micro-manage our lives and rob us of our freedoms. I will advocate for your rights, my rights, and the rights of future District 58 Iowans.


Finally, I will fight for our children. Public schools are indoctrinating our youth, turning history lessons into far-left propaganda courses, and fomenting political and ethnic hatred. Coupled with the last few years and the nearly psychotic compulsion of Democrats to impose perpetual mask mandates, we are in a dilemma. If we don’t act now and take back the ability to teach our children and have money follow the student, I fear for where we will be in 1, 2, 5, or even 10 years.
