DES MOINES, Iowa – Jeremy Freeman, 31, a conservative business owner and veteran from Grimes, filed to run in the Republican nomination for Iowa House District 46.
Freeman is an intelligence officer with the Iowa Army National Guard. He said that while deployed in eastern Europe he has seen first hand the damage that socialism has caused. Freeman said he would fight to stop socialism in Iowa.
“I am ecstatic to see Iowa Republicans pass major income tax relief and end taxes on retirement income. However we need to continue to work towards abolishing all income taxes in Iowa, and we must urgently pass property tax reform. What Covid has done to property values will be a real pain for Iowa taxpayers when the valuation increases come due. This is why I am running for Iowa House, to ensure we address problems such as these that have gone unaddressed this legislative session,” Freeman said.
He said he is committed to passing a “Truth in Taxation Law,” to keep property taxes under control, and requiring a two-thirds vote to raise taxes in Iowa. Freeman said he will also work to pass legislation to keep politics out of the classroom, and to ensure parents’ voices and choices are heard in their child’s education.
Freeman said he is a proponent of Marcy’s law which gives victims of crimes rights that are protected just as the rights of the accused are. He is a lifetime member of the NRA, and says he is 100 percent pro-life.
In addition to serving in the Iowa National Guard, Freeman owns his own consulting firm, specializing in natural resource management issues, works full time in the mortgage industry, and is finishing his MBA at Iowa State with a focus in Ag-Business. He graduated from Iowa State University with a bachelor of science degree in Wildlife Biology.
