Abby Finkenauer, Representative from District 99, will join Winneshiek County Democrats at their annual St Patrick’s Day Party. The event will feature both serious topics with Abby and also fun times with Irish music and good food and drink.
Abby is a 28 year old legislator who has been elected both in 2014 and 2016. She serves on several committees: Economic Growth, Labor, Transportation, and Ways and Means. Representative Finkenauer is a strong supporter of families and workers as evidenced by two bills for which she has joined sponsorship: minimum wage increase and income eligibility for child care.
This is a non-partisan, peaceful protest. We hope all Americans will stand for the Rule of Law in opposition of this unconstitutional and un-American act coming out of the Trump White House. Yes, the Executive Order has been Stayed by a Federal Judge - but our message remains clear: "You Are Welcome Here!"
We feel strongly that we must show our international friends and neighbors, near and far - "You Are Welcome Here!"
