Iowa borrows $13 million more to make budget balance | The Gazette

@JoshuaByrnes House Democrats offered package resulting in $53m savings to taxpayers last session. House Repubs killed the bill.

Bottom line, Gov Reynolds and GOP making Iowans pay for borrowed money and tax giveaways. Now, fuzzy math to avoid special session

@TimAlbrechtIA If Gov. Reynolds using a diff set of numbers, perhaps public deserves to know.…

Non-partisan experts projected accruals at $29.1 million. Ranged -16 to 19m past four years. Reynolds reporting they are $73.5m... shocker

The numbers don't add up. State was $104 million short on June 30... and only $13 million today. Where is Gov. Reynolds by the way?

Will Gov Reynolds call a special session or cook the books to avoid one? Read more here.

New budget memo: Gov. Reynolds failed economic policies are catching up to Iowa taxpayers and families.…

New budget memo: special session or cook the books? Hard choices follow Iowa GOP borrowing spree

@ChuckGrassley response to Tisha Dumkrieger after delivering messages pleading for him not to repeal #affordablecareact #youcandobetter

When vital services are understaffed w/ no overtime - Iowans suffer. What part of that does @KimReynoldsIA not understand? #IAOvertime

Position of weakness "...doesn't usually happen unless there's concern it's turning into a liability"…

We will be celebrating Sioux City's own Harry Hopkins on Oct 21st with @SenatorHarkin buy your tickets at

@IowaGOP You guys borrowed hundreds of millions on credit and bankrupt the state? So, that happened. Nice of you to ask.

@IowaGOP wish you did this much homework on managing the budget

It would be an @IowaGOP imposed property tax increase on most everybody that owns a house in Iowa…

Teachers like @KeithJuelfs going the extra yard to improve our communities and families. Thank a teacher @HawkeyeFootball and Sioux City

About Us

About the Woodbury County Democrats

The Woodbury County Democrats exist simply to help Democratic candidates get elected. We concentrate on local elections, of course, Woodburys Dems

but we also help at the state and national levels as much as possible.   This is done through a variety of means — though primarily by giving local candidates as much exposure as possible.


The Central Committee is the backbone of the Woodbury County Democrats. The Central Committee meets monthly. Most members of the Central Committee are elected every two years during the precinct caucuses. Each precinct is represented on the Central Committee. Members may also be appointed by the Chair, and there are a number of at-large members. NOTE: Any interested Democrat may attend the Central Committee meetings!

The Executive Committee is a much smaller group that meets monthly to deal with the mundane details that crop up. Members of the Executive Committee tend to be more active with the party on a day-to-day basis.


The Woodbury County Democrats hold a number of recurring events, such as breakfasts, fundraisers, dinners, etc. Please check our calendar to see what’s coming up!
