Deichmann accepts Hatch endorsement, shares listening tour results

For immediate release

July 14, 2014

WINTERSET – Pam Deichmann, Democratic candidate for Iowa Senate District 13, received the endorsement of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jack Hatch, and shared her plan for winning Independent voters and meeting constituents at a widely attended fundraiser on Sunday.

Gubernatorial candidate and State Senator Jack Hatch announced his support for Deichmann and discussed the important role of the Iowa Legislature at the event, held at his home in Winterset.

“I have known Pam for many years and have been continually impressed by her dedication and professionalism," Hatch said. "I know Pam's experience in public service will make her a knowledgeable and effective State Senator as we work to provide Iowa new leadership and a fresh start." 

Hatch’s name is added to Deichmann’s growing list of endorsements, including the Iowa Federation of Labor (IFL, AFL-CIO), AFSCME Iowa Council 61, the Iowa State Education Association (ISEA), and several others.

Deichmann addressed the crowd Sunday, stating that her listening tour included every community the district, which includes Warren and Madison counties. She reported that her conversation with voters had confirmed support for living wage protections, equal pay for women, clean water, soil conservation, classroom funding, small business programs, and local infrastructure.

“I also learned that voters in our communities are tired of having a state senator who doesn’t look out for them,” Deichmann said of current State Senator Julian Garrett, who has held the seat for only one legislative year. “People feel like he is too busy defending the Branstad administration, and not paying enough attention to what’s best for the district. I’ll tell you, though: it’s a tough job, but I’m up for it.”

The fundraiser drew dozens of voters and volunteers from Dallas, Madison, Polk and Warren counties. Among those in attendance were Hatch and his wife, Sonja; and Monica Vernon, the Democratic lieutenant governor candidate, and her husband, Bill.

Deichmann statement on her candidacy - and her campaign promise

Posted on June 04, 2014

... “As promised, I’ve met with people in every community across our district this spring,” she said, and continued, “Now it's your turn! Commit to working with me to put working families first, ensure safe and healthy communities, and support the small businesses that provide jobs.” She also took a swipe at her opponent, incumbent Julian Garrett, and the Branstad administration, saying she was “ready for the challenge of stopping Republicans’ lies and abuse of power.” ...

More reflections on Memorial Day

Posted on May 23, 2014

On Memorial Day, my mom and I have a tradition of going to the cemetery where my father was laid to rest. It's a time for reflecting and remembering. This Memorial Day, I'll be remembering and honoring several veterans in my family - my father, grandfather, uncles, and nephews. I'll also be honoring veterans from our district - not only with my thoughts and prayers but also with my attendance at parades and other events... I'll be participating in Indianola's Memorial Day parade on Monday. If you want to walk with me, please join the crowd meeting at the Administration Building (301 N Buxton) at 9:00 am. If you'll be at the parade as a spectator, please say hello, and let me know what else you'd like to see the Legislature do to support veterans in Iowa.
