FettHeadshotPeosta, Iowa — Nancy Fett of Peosta announced her candidacy for Iowa State Representative in District 57 representing Worthington, Dyersville, Farley, Bernard, Holy Cross, Rickardsville, New Vienna, Graf, Balltown, Sherrill, Epworth, and Peosta.

Fett believes she can bring the voice of common sense Iowa values back to the State House. “We have forgotten that the role of government is to work together to resolve issues and to make life better for our constituents,” Fett said.

Fett has taught in the social work program at Loras College for more than 22 years. Her experience also includes working with teens, assisting women through education and employment services, and helping men and women to become self-sufficient through education and other vital support.

“Iowa is at a crossroads,” said Fett. “Partisanship and D.C. style politics have infiltrated our state and caused us to neglect the issues impacting our communities. I will work with democrats, independents and republicans to bring our focus back to improving our schools, addressing the healthcare crisis, growing wages and keeping our communities safe.”

Fett also plans to address the ongoing Medicaid crisis plaguing Iowa, “While politicians promised cost savings and quality care, instead we’re living with higher costs and diminished care. Republicans instituted a for-profit healthcare scheme for Iowa and now that we see it’s not working, we need to come together and put party labels aside and do what’s best for Iowans.”

Fett lives with her husband Scott and two children in Peosta. She is active in her community serving on the Board of Directors for Catholic Charities, and on grant making boards for the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque, United Way, Winter Games Special Olympics committee. Nancy and her family are members of St. John the Baptist Church in Peosta.
