I've had enough.
Gov. Branstad continues to spread misinformation about his record on water quality. The simple fact? He vetoed $20 million in funds that would have improved Iowa's natural resources and protected water quality of our rivers, lakes and streams.
With full disclosure, I'm the Director for Citizens for a Healthy Iowa. We are a non-profit (c4) organized here in Iowa and we work primarily on water quality issues – public education & issue advocacy. More about our new ad, and campaign, after the jump ….
Iowa’s water is at risk, and Governor Branstad has only made the problem worse. Because of runoff from our farms and a complete failure of leadership by the Governor, we have more than 600 polluted rivers, lakes and streams, causing a nitrate surge in our drinking water.
Even our beer, mostly comprised of water, could be at risk because of the Governor. It’s shameful that he has allowed this to continue by vetoing funding to help clean up our polluted waterways.
