Keith Laube’s basic rules in decision making:

1.  Decisions are made based on a cost-benefit analysis. Keith looks at what is best for the taxpayer not only in the short term, but in the long term. If the cost is more than the realistic benefit, the idea or program is not beneficial to the taxpayer.

2.  Citizens should not loose freedoms granted by the Iowa Constitution or the United States Constitution.

3.  Decisions should not be made based on party politics or favors to large campaign donors.  Being independent of the 2 major political parties, Keith Laube is the only candidate who will make decisions based on what is best for Iowans.
