Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Keast's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Education

  • Excerpt: "A great education is an Iowa value. We market our state by it. Many of us have come to the state or chose to stay because of our schools. I believe public education is the great equalizer and is available to every student in our state. We then should expect to adequately fund our public schools to make it possible for them to be leaders of education in the global economy."

Iowa’s Economy

  • Excerpt: "While we are fortunate Iowa’s economy has weathered the national recession better than most states, we must work together to strengthen our local economy, create jobs, and expand Iowa’s middle class. It starts with a strong “Made in Iowa” law to help local manufacturers and small businesses by giving them first crack at state contracts – so we can keep our jobs and tax dollars here, not send them to places like India and China."
