Democrat Rick Dickinson running for Iowa 1st District seat

A supporter has helpfully steered me to the website of Rick Dickinson, Democrat contender for Iowa's 1st congressional seat.

Who's Rick Dickinson?
Well, here's a little from his bio:
An eastern Iowa native and the oldest of seven children, Rick Dickinson grew-up on the family’s Jackson County farm. His small town upbringing, faith and the Dickinson family’s strong Iowa values have always influenced Rick to give back to his community and to appreciate the importance of public service.

After graduating from William Penn College in 1974, Rick and his wife Rae Ann, an elementary public school teacher for 30 years, returned to his hometown of Sabula along the banks of the Mississippi River. Fresh out of college, Rick witnessed first-hand and learned the hard truths about the challenges people face everyday when he spent four years working as an Iowa Corrections Officer in Jackson County.

With a desire to contribute more to his community, Rick was first elected Mayor of Sabula at the age of 24. He was then elected twice to the Jackson County Board of Supervisors. In 1990, Rick was elected to the first of his two terms in the Iowa Legislature where he proudly represented the people of Jackson and southern Dubuque County. During this period, Rick was also employed as the Eastern US Sales Manager for a Fortune 500 company before taking over as Director of the Greater Dubuque Development Corporation in 1995.

Yes, Gluba has the name id. I have seen his van driving about at events and he is working the QC area base hard already.

Dickenson? Never heard of him.

Stick with Gluba and the Dems have a chance to pick-up a badly needed house seat.
