We had an excellent District Day event. Rep. Dave Loebsack joined me and four other service advocates from Mt. Pleasant in his Iowa City office. They included the director of RSVP in Henry County, who is part of the leadership council, and the director of community health and her assistant, who signed pledge cards and joined the ServeNext network. A longtime Democratic activist and former city councilwoman rounded out the group. All in all, it was great to talk with Rep. Loebsack about national service and what will be lost in Iowa if funding for the Corporation for National and Community Service is eliminated.
