In 2011, public health director Mariannette Miller-Meeks eliminated the full-time administrator position for its anti-tobacco division that was mandated under Iowa law. Also under her leadership, the statewide teen group, Just Eliminate Lies (JEL) was unfunded.

Now Miller-Meeks seeks election to Congress in the Second District of Iowa. One of her goals is to “fix” the Affordable Care Act. Please spare us her lack of concern for Iowan’s health.
