One way to ease the debt crisis is to lower college tuition. Thursday’s guest for the Iowa Forums has a plan to do that.
Desmund Adams will tell you upfront that his teen years were a struggle. He dropped out of high school, but he found his way, earned a degree and now owns an executive search committee.
Political Director Dave Price asks Adams about college tuition, creating jobs, the black lives matter movement and more.
Part 1 — Minimum Wage and Equal Pay
Part 2 -- Law and Order
Adams is pushing for criminal justice reform. Recently, a University of Iowa student said he was a victim of a hate crime. He claimed some white students taunted him, beat him up and used racial slurs. He later admitted it was a lie and he apologized.
Adams talks about the case and the Black Lives Matters movement.
Part 3 -- Health Checkup
Adams talks about the future of health care and says what’s working, what’s not and what’s next for the nation.
Part 4 -- Being Unique
Adams has two challenges before him. First, beat those other two Democrats to win the nomination, and second, beat Republican Congressman David Young.
He explains why he thinks he's unique for the job of representing Iowans in Congress.
The Third District isn't the only big election voters will decide on June 7.
Can one of these four knock off five-term incumbent Charles Grassley in the U.S. Senate?
Tom Fiegen, Rob Hogg, Patty Judge and Bob Krause are running to challenge him as the Democratic nominee.
They'll join us for the Iowa Forum all next week starting on Monday on Channel 13 News.
