The coronavirus epidemic is disrupting every part of our lives. Health care, business, education — nothing is safe from the pandemic’s path, and in two short months, our entire country has changed. During this time of uncertainty, Americans look to their leaders for guidance and courage. Seeing governors like Iowa’s Gov. Kim Reynolds step up, and the results of their leadership, is a side effect of this crisis that should not be overlooked.
Leadership during a crisis isn’t only how you respond, but also what you’ve done before disaster strikes. We’re still in the thick of it, but Iowa entered this mess on solid ground — and that’s going to make all the difference when it’s time to work our way back towards what was previously considered ‘normal.’
Gov. Kim Reynolds was one of two governors selected to serve on the president’s American Workforce Advisory Board, and it’s easy to see why. While many politicians are content paying lip service to pro-work policies, Reynolds has long led the nation with common-sense solutions that actually remove barriers to employment.
