Hi I'm Pauline Chilton. I’m running for Iowa house district 99 for Dubuque Iowa. I am the daughter of a Vietnam veteran, wife of a Gulf War veteran, and mother of four teenagers, two of whom will be in college in the fall of this year. I was born in South Korea as an American citizen abroad, grew up in Chicago and have been proud to call Dubuque home for the last 16 years. For the last 12 years I have worked in real estate, helping people buy homes, businesses and commercial property. I have served on numerous boards and committees, including the East Central Iowa Association of Realtors, Dubuque Symphony Orchestra, Multicultural Family Center, to name a few. Why am I running? Because I believe it is my calling. I believe that limited government is necessary to maintain freedom and liberty, and that personal responsibility is better than government dependency. I believe in the American dream and that anyone can achieve it, no matter where you came from or where you started out in life -- equality of opportunity. That is why education, economic growth, and quality of life are my three main priorities. To better prepare our children for a bright future in the career of their choice, I will work to promote college readiness and vocational training programs. I will stand with local job creators, champion workforce training programs, encourage innovation and entrepreneurship to grow our economy. Dubuque is a great place to live and raise a family and I want to make sure it remains that way. I’m asking for your support and your vote!
