Governor Reynolds is focused on training Iowa’s workforce. Future Ready Iowa will connect Iowa’s efforts in education, workforce training, and economic development. The program will target underserved, underrepresented, unemployed Iowans and making sure they have what they need to find a job. The Governor’s goal for Future Ready Iowa is that by 2025, 70% of our workforce will have an education or training beyond high school.
The Governor and Lt. Governor’s campaign has been rapidly organizing all over the state of Iowa. The campaign has recruited 3,500 county chairs in all 99 counties and that number continues to grow each day. The campaign is Co-Chaired by US Senators Ernst and Grassley, Congressman Rod Blum, and Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey. This impressive team shows that Iowa’s conservative movement is united behind Governor Kim Reynolds and Lt. Governor Adam Gregg and their vision to build a better Iowa as well as help elect Republican leaders up and down the ballot.
The campaign also looks forward to Governor Kim Reynolds’ first Harvest Festival, which will be held on October 21st. You can find more information about that event by clicking here.
