OCTOBER 24TH, 2008 | Harkin for Senate
Today Senator Harkin received the endorsement of the Ottumwa Courier.The Courier Editorial Board cited Senator Harkin’s commitment to renewable energy and to Iowa’s school children as two reasons why he received their endorsement:
Harkin is also a champion of renewable energy, biofuels, bio-based products and energy efficiency efforts and his support of continued growth in these areas will benefit Iowans in the years to come.
Harkin should be praised for his commitment to Iowa’s school children. His Harkin School Grants alone have helped the Ottumwa school district with critical building funds, including the recent Eisenhower Elementary expansion project.
The senator is also committed to expanding Head Start and pre-K education, knowing full well this is a critical point in a child’s life. What happens at ages 3 and 4 can make a difference in their learning over the course of their K-12 career.
