Ernst vows to support small cities
Between a trip to Fayette County early Monday morning and a stop in Bremer County Monday afternoon, Iowa U.S. Senator Joni Ernst spent the late Monday morning hours in Chickasaw County, taking a close look at downtown New Hampton.
Ernst paid a visit to the folks at New Hampton Economic Development, and discussed small-town economic issues, before she took a walking tour down Main Street in New Hampton, with stops at Iowa Big North, Quilter’s Window and what soon will be the new downtown site of Hugeback-Johnson Funeral Home.
“We need to ask ourselves in Washington, ‘how can we assist smaller communities, like New Hampton, from the federal level?’” Ernst said.
