Our Candidates

We believe these candidates have 20/20 Vision.

Although there are many ways to define an effective leader, the PAC has identified four qualities/traits that speak to what candidates should embody. 


  1. Humility: When leaders lack the expertise and knowledge to solve a specific problem, they identify the right resources, assemble the right people and accept the challenge as an opportunity to enhance their ability to lead. 

  2. Equity: Leaders look at all sides of an issue at micro and macro levels before making a decision, and pay close attention to intended and unintended consequences of policy decisions in an effort to make the best decision for constituents. 

  3. Collaboration: Leaders must work in a collaborative spirit, understanding that they alone cannot conquer the monumental challenges we face, but can convene communities, for the greater good.

  4. Engaged: Leaders must understand the communities that they desire to serve, and continuously seek out information about what impacts them most, how they see themselves in their communities and how they wish to participate in creating change.

Scott County Supervisor

Jazmin Newton

The Scott County Board of Supervisors is responsible for major decisions that affect not just the county, but our entire bi-state region. It is imperative we have a board of supervisors that is reflective of the diverse population of Scott County guaranteeing all residents have representation. We need a strong advocate who can be a voice for all people. I am that advocate for Scott County.

Rural Iowa must not be left behind. I still believe that by working together, we can revitalize our rural farm economy, rebuild our main streets, and bring the next generation back home to do it.
