INVESTING IN IOWA
Hello! If you don't know me yet, I'm Jennifer Kakert. I'm running to represent you in the Iowa House here in District 92.
I am a proud small business owner with over 30 years’ experience working in finance and accounting. I serve as the Vice Chair and a board member for Scott County Kids - Early Childhood Iowa, and the Treasurer and a board member for Habitat for Humanity Quad Cities. I'm also the Chief Financial Officer for Financial District Properties and serve on the Downtown Davenport Partnership Board of Directors.
I am married to Tom Kakert and live in Blue Grass Iowa with my two children Jack and Caitlin. We moved to Iowa 16 years ago for the great public schools and safe neighborhoods to raise our family. Our children are sixth generation Iowan’s and it is my hope that they will continue to find opportunity here and return here to raise their families. But right now, it seems like we have forgotten to invest in the people of Iowa.
From an early age, I have believed that hard work is the key to success. However, times are currently tough - especially during COVID-19. Hard-working Iowans have been laid off by no fault of their own. I will work across party lines so that we can fully invest our communities and our children to make HD92 a great place to live and work for everyone.
With me as your representative, I'll work to get Iowans back to work, and the relief they need.
