ISU Meet & Greet with DeJear, Sand & Gannon

  • Memorial Union South Ballroom 2229 Lincoln Way Ames, IA, 50014 United States (map)

Join the ISU College Democrats in welcoming three Democrats running for statewide office here in Iowa: Rob Sand, Deidre DeJear, and Tim Gannon.

This is a fantastic opportunity to hear from people who may soon hold offices that have a wide range of impacts on our everyday life: voting, public corruption, agriculture, business development, and many others. This event will help you and your members become informed about candidates for three very important offices before voting this fall. This event is open to people of all political persuasions. 

Candidates in attendance:
Deidre DeJear, Candidate for Iowa Secretary of State
Deidre has dedicated her career to community and small business development. In 2008, on the brink of the recession, Deidre found her calling in working with small business and building relationships in the community. She began her own small business, Caleo Enterprises, which provides entrepreneurs with affordable marketing tools and business strategies. As the sole-founder, Deidre’s work has impacted over 300 small businesses and nonprofit organizations

Rob Sand, Candidate nominee for Iowa Auditor of State 
As Assistant Attorney General, Rob worked relentlessly investigating and prosecuting Republicans and Democrats. As State Auditor, Rob will be a watchdog for your taxpayer money, keeping our elected officials in check.

Tim Gannon, Candidate for Iowa Secretary of Agriculture 
Tim is a fifth-generation Iowan and former USDA Official where he served for eight years under Secretary Vilsack. Before joining the USDA, Tim worked on President Obama's 2008 Iowa campaign as Director of Rural Outreach. Last week, Tim was honored to receive President Obama's endorsement.
