Sheldon, Iowa — The Family Research Council and The Heritage Foundation are teaming up and will be in northwest Iowa with their VALUESBUS this Tuesday (5/8).
They’ll start the day at 8:30 a.m. at Sioux Center’s HyVee Parking Lot and later that morning they’ll come to Sheldon.
The bus is to be at the Los Tulipanes restaurant (101 N. Runger, next to Pizza Ranch) parking lot at 11:30 AM.
We talked with Rod Fonkert with the Sheldon Tea Party Patriots, who tells us about the bus.[audio:http://www.kiwaradio.com/files/Rod1.mp3|titles=Rod1]
Fonkert tells says the Heritage Foundation is all about traditional values.[audio:http://www.kiwaradio.com/files/Rod2.mp3|titles=Rod2]
He says while the bus is not affiliated with any political party or candidate, there will be some special speakers also.[audio:http://www.kiwaradio.com/files/Rod3.mp3|titles=Rod3]
The ValuesBus is equipped to do voter registration and Champion registration, where you can learn how to reach out to fellow voters with similar values.
Fonkert says we in northwest Iowa don’t get an opportunity like this very often, so he would encourage people to come see the bus, hear the speakers, and get registered to vote.
As a side note, Fonkert says they appreciate the management of Los Tulipanes restaurant letting them use the parking lot, and encourages people to show the management their support.
