Ragan, Steckman, residents share views at Mason City forum
“IPERS is a great thing. I would like to reinvest in it. I think a lot of people would. If they did, the money wouldn’t have to go to Wall Street,” he said.
Suby was one of many people who spoke and asked questions at a legislative forum held by State Sen. Amanda Ragan and State Rep. Sharon Steckman, both Mason City Democrats.
About 30 people attended the forum at the Mason City Public Library and touched on subjects such as gun legislation, worker compensation, health care, water quality and voter IDs.
Steckman, a former teacher, said she saw no need to make changes in IPERS. “It’s doing just fine the way it is,” she said.
