Editor:

I am writing to express my support for Representative Andy McKean in House District 58. Andy is approachable, responsive to e-mail and open to personal conversation. In the last few years, I have been at town hall meetings in Bellevue, Maquoketa, Dubuque, Wyoming, Oxford Junction and Anamosa where he spoke. At the forums, Representative McKean described what he was working on in the Iowa Legislature and respectfully listened and responded to audience questions and concerns.

Recently, a friend of mine who lives outside of Representative McKean’s House District had some medical/employment matters and didn’t know where to turn. I contacted Andy, explained the situation and stated that I realized this was outside of his district. A day later, he replied with a very helpful resource and with this information my friend was able to resolve the issues.

As an elected official, Representative McKean provides outstanding access, and we are lucky to have someone like him representing us in Des Moines. Please support Andy for reelection!
