|Meet Brad Sherman|
For the voters in Iowa’s House District 91 (which includes Iowa County as well as western and northern portions of Johnson County north of Coralville Lake) and for anyone else who wants to support the conservative cause in Iowa, I’d like to introduce myself and explain why I am running for a seat in the State Legislature.
My name is Brad Sherman and I lived in Johnson County, Iowa for 30 years before moving near Williamsburg in Iowa County 12 years ago. I currently serve as chair for the Iowa County Republicans and as pastor of Solid Rock Church in Coralville. My wife Carole and I have been married for 47 years. We have 4 children and 13 grandchildren; I am concerned for their future and yours.
My primary vocation has been serving as a pastor, which I have done for more than 40 years. Though pastors are not generally thought of as blue collar people, I bring a lot of blue collar common sense to the table. Before and during the past 40 years, I have worked in farm drainage and land improvement, worked as a heavy equipment operator and mechanic, worked in the construction trade building commercial and residential buildings, and have done some real estate development.
I am a patriotic American with a concern for good government. For many years I’ve worked in caucuses, political conventions, and presidential campaigns as far back as the mid 1980’s. I have been a long time advocate for Life, helping to found Informed Choices Medical Clinics where I served as the president and board chair for 10 years. I have traveled around the Midwest conducting seminars helping people understand the principles that made America the freest nation on earth. One of those principles is laid out in the Declaration of Independence which states that our rights come from God, not government, and the purpose of government is to protect those rights. It seems that many in elected office have forgotten this principle.
There is a serious disconnect between politicians and the real hard-working people who actually get things done. This disconnect exists largely because we have big donors and big businesses who are controlling career politicians. They seem to be more concerned about position and power than about people.
The corrupt condition of Washington, DC is accurately described as a swamp and it seems to be swallowing us up. But we must remember that it was the states that created federal government in the first place and it is going to take strong leadership in the states to put overgrown federal government back in its Constitutional place. I am running for State House because I firmly believe that the line must be drawn at the state level and I want to join others in drawing that line.
Like many Americans today, I find the socialist and Marxist trends that are pushing our nation toward the brink of tyranny very alarming. I can’t sit back and let these evils destroy the freedoms that have made America a blessing to the entire world. This is my pledge to you if I am elected to the State House: I won’t become a rubber stamp for any donor or any career politician. I believe there is right and wrong and I will stand for what I know to be right. I will work for truth and transparency in government because government is the people’s business.
There is much more I could say, but for now, I’m asking for your help and together we can become part of a movement to take our nation back!
