Kathy Potts joins board to build statewide Republican support for marriage equality
Des Moines, IA—Today, Iowa Republicans for Freedom (IRFF) announced a new addition to the advisory board. Former GOP Party Chair Kathy Potts will join Republicans throughout the state including former Iowa State Senator Jeff Angelo and City Councilmembers from Grimes, Davenport, and Council Bluffs. She brings with her years of experience with the Republican Party serving as a party leader and campaign volunteer.
“We are proud and honored to have Kathy join our team,” said Senator Jeff Angelo, IRFF chair. “The goal of Iowa Republicans for Freedom is to increase support for marriage equality among Republicans in the state, and with the support of this influential and visible GOP leader, we know that we can reach more Republicans who believe in small government and equality for all.”
Kathy Potts is a former Linn County Republican Chair and has been an active volunteer on numerous Republican campaigns, most recently serving as County Chair for the Rick Perry campaign for President. She also served on the Linn County Leadership Team for Mitt Romney in the 2008 campaign. She has been active in the Iowa Federation of Republican Women and the National Federation of Republican Women.
“Over the course of my career, I have met many members of the LGBT community and I’ve learned to see people and not labels,” said Kathy Potts. “Supporting small government and individual liberties are the
key tenets of the Republican Party and I am excited to begin working with Iowa Republicans for Freedom to encourage support for marriage equality among my fellow Republicans.”
