David Young has many stories to share while he was the Chief of Staff for Senator Grassley such as checking the telephone booths for quarters and the other was “let’s get some ice cream. If you know the Senator, you’ll know David.

David grew up in Van Meter, Iowa a small town. While growing up he worked several jobs including one as a paper boy. His family eventually moved to Johnston where he went to high school and worked at the Iowa State Fair during summers. David always worked!

After graduating from Johnston High School in l986 he attended Buena Vista University and graduated from Drake University. He then went to work as a manager loan trainee at Norwest Financial. Within a year he entered the world of politics as a legislative aide for U.S. Senator Hank Brown. As I mentioned, he worked….He spent one year l997 at Media Research Center until re-entering into legislative affairs and was hired by Senator Jim Bunning as his legislative director and chief of staff. In 2006 he was hired by Iowa Senator chuck Grassley as his chief of staff and held that position until 2013. He then ran for Congress and was elected in 2015

David isn’t the outgoing fun-loving guy who’s going to pat you on the back and promise you the world, he’s going to tell you like it is. Times may get tough, but we’ll see what we can do to keep you safe. During his time in Congress he supported insurance protections for those with pre-existing conditions, the use of health insurance savings accounts and giving Affordable Care Act subsidies directly to individuals rather than the insurance companies. He said he opposed the introduction of insurance options,

The Coronavirus has left our country devastated. In response to the economic affects of this virus he said he would reduce taxes, support requiring a congressional vote on newly introduced rules and regulations for businesses and reduce regulations on trade. I support his ideas!

David has proven himself. As others in political positions you may not always agree but you know they have your back and that they’ll work for Iowa. You can trust David Young just like you can trust Senator Chuck Grassley. I know David personally as I also know his family. I don’t support him because of our personal relationship I support him because I know he’s honest, I know he faithful and I know where he stands on the issues and I stand with him. Please join me next Tuesday, November 3 as I cast my vote for David Young for Congress.
