Meet Christian

Who I am.

I'm a public works employee, a husband, a father of two and a community volunteer. I'm seeking election as State Representative in House District 95 to be a voice for local workers, for parents, for small business owners and for everyday Iowans.  


Why I'm running.

I’m running for office because I believe people in my district have been overlooked. For the past year and a half, the Iowa legislature has underfunded education, blocked minimum wage increases, reduced workers’ benefits and taken collective bargaining rights away from the public employees who serve us all.

What I stand for.

If we can’t give hard-working families the opportunities, the benefits, the education and the quality of life they deserve, they’re going to leave Iowa. I will fight to do the right thing by our teachers, by our public servants and by our kids. I will fight to make sure families stay right here and are proud to call Iowa home.

Why I should represent you.

I’ve always enjoyed helping people and that’s why I do the work that I do. I can speak for regular Iowans because that’s who I am. I’ve been a truck driver, a carpenter, a small business owner, an activist and a stay-at-home dad. I've always had the ability to talk to anyone, whether you're a CEO or steelworker.

Where I call home.

I wasn’t born in Iowa, but my parents chose to move here when I was in high school. My family has lived in Mount Vernon for nearly five years. I work for the city of Mount Vernon and I love my job because I get to help out in my community. Whether I’m changing the trash, digging a grave, or plowing snow, I do my job with the reverence due all taxpayers and citizens. I believe in giving back to the community and volunteer as often as I can for various projects. I've also been a parks and rec baseball coach here for the past three years.
