From the Dickinson Dems' Ratified Platform of 2018

We the People of the Dickinson County Democratic Party believe that Iowa families deserve access to a high-quality education, the opportunity to get good jobs, and are able to live well in healthy communities.

  • We believe that members of the Armed Forces deserve our support while in the military and after they return home as veterans.
  • We believe that a thriving business community does not have to come at the expense of workers’ rights.
  • We believe that Iowa’s heritage — agriculture — can be rich and successful without harming our environment or the long-term success of family farmers.
  • We believe in empowering every generation of Iowan.
  • We believe in being active citizens, doing hard work, and being responsible neighbors.
  • We believe that our vote is our greatest American right and will defend it.
  • And we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to realize our Nation’s founding promise: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The Dickinson County Democrats reaffirm with this platform our state’s official motto:

Our Liberties We Prize and Our Rights We Will Maintain.
