A Capitol Story

“Thank you so much for going to the Capitol. I hope you all had a good time and received a lot of FACTUAL & Informative information from Mike, Denise & David, their lobbyist. I will keep you up-to-date as the bill makes its way through the House & Senate. It was also an important day for Nancy Dunkel as she officially turned in her papers to run for Representative.” Karla Thompson - Executive Director, Dyersville Area Chamber of Commerce.

“Thank you Stillmans for inviting us along. I learned a lot about the whole lobbying process. It was an awesome experience and enjoyed finally meeting the people behind this great opportunity for Dyersville.“ Heidi Huisman - Savvy Salvage

“It was a fantastic experience. It was great getting to know everyone better and bouncing ideas off each other. The Stillmans are great people and their project will benefit everyone in our community in a positive way and I am thankful they are giving us this huge opportunity.” Theresa Neuhaus - American Realty and neighbor to the Field of Dreams.

A neighbor to the Field of Dreams, the Mayor of Dyersville, Executive Director of the Dyersville Area Chamber of Commerce and a variety of business owners got together for a road trip to Iowa’s Capitol. The group went to talk to legislators to tell them about the preservation of the Field of Dreams and the proposed All-Star Ballpark Heaven projects. On the way they reviewed procedures and proper etiquette they would need while negotiating the beautiful Capitol’s many floors and offices.

This collage of business people wanted to show and tell the legislators about the projects they feel best for the Field of Dreams and for Iowa! It was a great day to go as the subcommittee was meeting to discuss a bill that would allow rebates of a portion of sales tax collected if the project goes through.
