Larry believes firmly in the sanctity of human life, traditional marriage as ordained by God, and the original intent of our Constitutional rights.
I worked in laboratories for 34 years and then immediately began planting a hardwood forest. However, when I looked up from my works, I sadly discovered that no one had been tending the store. The liberties I’d had as a youth had been slowly usurped by an encroaching government. Now my childrens’ future is dependent on government actions. I want my kids to have the same freedoms and opportunities that I had.
Being an Iowa Representative is not a “career” for me. My beliefs and values do not waver like the wind. It is a duty to be a representative of the people, elected by the people, to work for the people.
I want to limit the role of government, strengthen traditional families & their values, insure our outdoor freedoms & the rule of law. - Larry Sheets
