President’s vision represents the values of Iowans, says Chairwoman Dvorsky
Washington, D.C — Iowa Democratic Party Chair Sue Dvorsky released the following statement today from Washington, D.C., on the second inauguration of President Barack Obama:
“To echo President Obama’s own words, today reminds us that our inauguration ceremonies are much more a celebration of our nation, than a celebration of any president or political party.
“I proudly join Iowans of all ages who are here in Washington, D.C. today, and the countless citizens back home, as well as those around the country, who are filled with joy and a sustained sense of optimism about the future of this nation.
“His steadfast commitment to advancing issues and prioritizing policies over ‘politics as usual’ is what makes this president exceptional. Expanding access to affordable health care, increasing education and employment opportunities, and safeguarding the civil rights, safety, and equality of all Americans are at the heart of what matters most to Iowa families.
“I am enormously proud of what President Obama accomplished the last four years, and I look forward to his second term with hope for the future and determination to continue the work alongside him.”
