Democrats Sand and O’Brien to speak in Atlantic Sept. 5th


August 29th, 2018 by Ric Hanson

Cass County Democratic Party Chair Sherry Toelle reports Rob Sand, candidate for Iowa State Auditor, and Denise O’Brien, candidate for Iowa House District #21, will be appearing together at the Sweet Joy Shoppe in Atlantic on Wednesday, September 5th, beginning at 4:30 PM.

Rob Sand

Toelle says Sand, a former Assistant Attorney General for the State of Iowa, has spent the past decade fighting public corruption and prosecuting white collar crime. He uncovered and led the prosecution of the nationwide lottery-rigging scheme. He also investigated and prosecuted fraud that was related to Iowa’s film tax credit program. As State Auditor, Toelle says his priority is to protect taxpayers by stopping waste and fraud, actions which will benefit the state economy. He believes that the Auditor’s Office needs to add a law enforcement professional who is unafraid to investigate taxpayer-funded corruption.

Denise O’Brien

Denise O’Brien is a lifelong public servant. She currently runs an organic vegetable farm with her husband. Toelle says O’Brien wants to bring her experience within the rural community to the Iowa State House, believing that there is much more the State Legislature can do for the agricultural community as well as for education, health care, the environment, and water quality.

The public is invited to participate in the Sept. 5th event.
