SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Miller-Meeks stands out

I have considerable depth and breadth of knowledge of Mariannette Miller-Meeks, as I was on the committee that chose her out of several hundred applicants to be an Iowa Eye resident for three and one-half years. Miller-Meeks is running in the 2nd Congressional District Republican primary.

Her lifelong saga dwarfs Horatio Alger’s best offering, and it speaks eloquently to her perseverance, integrity, intelligence, amicability, and trustworthiness. Working with her in the clinics and operating rooms provided me a firsthand witness of these attributes. We also had the pleasure of entertaining the Miller-Meeks family in our home on several occasions.

Be assured that if elected, Mariannette would never vote for a bill without first reading and thoroughly understanding it. She would be in Washington, D.C., to represent 2nd District folks, not to take orders from more senior or powerful Beltway regulars. Furthermore, she would rail against any bill to increase taxes or expand an already over-extended government.

Also, know that one of her favorite admonitions is that of Cicero: “The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled, pubic debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance.”

Cicero’s admonition accurately describes the focus, drive, and principles Mariannette Miller-Meeks would take to Washington, D.C.
