Learn more about Heckroth for Senate

Please meet a great candidate for Congress in the 1st Congressional District, a strong advocate for working families — Thomas Heckroth.

Thomas has spent his career helping workers. First as an advisor to U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin, a life-long friend of organized labor and the American worker. While working for Sen. Harkin, he focused on education, agriculture and labor policy — issues critically important to the citizens of Iowa. Thomas continued his fight for workers when he joined the Obama Administration’s Department of Labor, holding corporations and trading partners accountable to protect workers’ rights and level the playing field for Iowans and American workers.

Following government service, his commitment to justice continued. He worked in the private sector for a clothing manufacturer. There he enforced fair labor and environmental standards at home and around the world, to show that profit doesn’t have to come at the expense of people and the environment.

Thomas has the support of many individual union members and their families throughout the district because they have gotten to know him and recognize that he has the experience that our next Congressman needs to represent working families. They know that Thomas believes that “representative” is not a title but a job description that will require him to listen to Iowans, work hard for all Iowans and lead in the effort to improve the lives of all Iowans! I encourage everyone to learn more about Thomas Heckroth — heck yes — and support him in the June 5 primary.
