Carroll, Iowa —

Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement Action Fund (Iowa CCI Action Fund) members from CCI Action Fund’s seven-county Carroll Regional Chapter will hold a “People First Iowa” Community Forum with Democratic candidate for Governor, Senator Jack Hatch, on Saturday, December 14, at 6:30pm in the Harold Bierl Community Room of the Carroll Chamber of Commerce, 407 West 5th Street in Carroll, Iowa.

Iowa CCI Action Fund members will take Senator Hatch on a closed factory farm tour in Carroll and Sac counties prior to the public 6:30pm community forum in Carroll Saturday.

Iowa CCI Action Fund members have a longstanding Carroll Regional chapter in Audubon, Carroll, Calhoun, Crawford, Greene, Guthrie, and Sac counties.

“Governor Branstad’s pro-corporate, factory farm agenda is hurting everyday people and hardworking families across Iowa – and this community forum is our opportunity to see how progressive champion and state senator Jack Hatch stacks up against Branstad on the issues that matter most,” said Rosie Partridge, a small business owner and long-time Iowa CCI Action Fund member from Breda.

Iowa CCI Action Fund members say the forum will include conversations on:

  • Local control of factory farms and other agriculture and environmental policies
  • Raising the minimum wage
  • Closing corporate tax loopholes
  • Getting the corrosive influence of big money out of our political system, and
  • Much, much more.

“I’m excited for this opportunity to get to know Senator Hatch more and what his plans are to create a People First Iowa that puts the common good before corporate greed,” said John Cook, an Iowa CCI Action Fund member from Carroll.

The community forum Saturday at 6:30pm at the Carroll Chamber of Commerce is open to the public and media is also invited to attend.
