According to an article run in the Press-Citizen, Janelle Rettig is touting herself as a fiscal conservative.
Rettig isn't being honest with voters. Her record betrays her claims.
In October, the Natural Resources Commission approved about $2.8 million in funding for twenty recreational trails projects across Iowa as part of the Resource Enhancement and Protection program (REAP). Iowa Bicycle Coalition Development Director, Janelle Rettig, is also on the Natural Resource Commission and voted to approve the selection committee’s recommendations.
Thanks to Chet Culver and Democrat leadership, the state is in some serious financial trouble. Culver has had to borrow money to pay the state's bills. And here we have Rettig giving the green light to continued spending on wants, not needs. The state can't pay its bills and Rettig is grabbing more of your money to build trails?
That's being fiscally conservative?
And here's a thought, now that Rettig is a Johnson County Supervisor, shouldn't she be resigning her other board/committee/commission posts? Can you say "Conflict of interest?" I think you can...... For example, she is a Commissioner with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. They approve or deny funds to Johnson County......
Janelle Rettig, not being upfront with voters, denying conflicts of interest, has a record of taxing and spending, a member of the Democrat machine.
