The candidates vying to lead Fort Madison for the next two years each feel they have the vision, attitude and ability to move the city forward.
The three candidates for the Democratic nomination in Iowa’s 42nd Senate District say they will make education a top priority.
Bob Morawitz of Fort Madison, Rich Taylor of Mount Pleasant and Donna Amandus of Fort Madison each say improvements to the education system equate to economic development.
Morawitz says the key is improving the workforce, adding “we have a lot of people who do not have the skills and need the training.”
He says that starts with focusing on adult education, especially as industrial jobs become more technology-based.
