Ross Wilburn places priorities on subjects of importance to Iowans. His "Let's Be Iowa" campaign is based on the following issues:
- Healthy Iowa, ensuring that all of the state’s residents, no matter their economic status, live in a healthy environment and can access high-quality health care from Iowa’s network of hospitals, clinics and community providers, including those covering mental health. Wilburn, who also is a part-time fitness instructor, believes that health care is a right for Iowans as well as a responsibility that we must practice in our daily lives. Healthy Iowa also calls for cleaning up and protecting the state’s environment, including groundwater, with involvement from agricultural, industrial and environmental experts.
- Prosperous Iowa, developing a strong and sustainable economy from rural to urban communities that provides ample work as well as accessible, affordable education to lift all Iowans. Wilburn will focus on Iowa’s K-12 system as well as its colleges and universities, ensuring education that once again is recognized as the best in the nation as well as strengthening connections with employers to ensure that the next generation of Iowans is prepared for success.
- Inclusive Iowa, bridging the gaps that threaten to divide our state and creating an Iowa that is fair and open to all. This work will include restoring collective bargaining rights for all employees and addressing fears from farms to cities that some Iowans are being left behind.
- Working For Iowa, Wilburn’s pledge for how he will get the work done as governor, no matter the issue. He will work for Iowans by listening, building consensus and bringing together sometimes disparate interests. Working For Iowa will mirror how Iowans get work done every day with the neighbors they see at the grocery store and the gas station.
