if Brandstad was elected back into office, how can he justify a 15% downsizing of the state employees.....last time he was in office he froze hiring. So, my question is, WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD VOTE SOMEONE BACK INTO OFFICE LIKE HIM!!!

Someone needs to find out the actual reason why so many major job producers moved out of the region.

Outside of I-Jobs, how many jobs have been created and/or retained in the last 2 years? Of those, how many are paying above $10/hr?

I would like for people to first remember how many jobs Mr. Brandstad actually created and for him to name say 25,000 of the 200,000 or even 10,000. Ande let's have some specific comments on who is going to do the hiring of the 300,000 Iowans.
