Iowa House District 99
Abby Finkenauer is running for her second term in the Iowa House. She serves on Economic Growth, Labor, Transportation and Ways and Means Committees. Abby also serves on the Economic Development Appropriations Subcommittee.
Abby grew up in Northeast Iowa, a daughter of a Union Pipefitter welder and a 17-year Dubuque Community Schools employee. She was taught at an early age that in a working class household, you must say,” Yes,” to every opportunity and when there was work to be done, you do it. Her late grandfather, a Dubuque Lt. Firefighter, instilled the importance of public service and giving back to the community.
As a state legislator, Abby has put her time and focus into expanding workers’ rights, fighting to protect and encourage Iowa’s students from preschool to college, and ensuring equality for all Iowans. Outside of the Legislature, Abby works to keep all Iowans, especially young people, engaged and involved in politics to better their communities and Iowa.
