Meet Christian Andrews
Welcome! And Thank You for Visiting Andrews for Iowa
Christian Andrews is a resident of Mount Vernon who is running to represent District 95 in the Iowa House of Representatives. Drawing from his professional and personal experiences, he will be an advocate for everyday Iowans who are routinely overlooked by career politicians in the Des Moines legislature.
Christian has a keen, first-hand understanding of the needs facing small business owners. He previously owned a construction company in Cedar Falls that focused on a wide array of renovation projects for more than twenty commercial and residential clients. Christian was involved in all aspects of the company’s operations including accounting, carpentry and design collaborations.
This experience has given him a unique perspective on the exceptional challenges confronting small business owners, their employees and families. Christian knows they need to navigate a rapidly evolving 21st century economy that increasingly relies on cutting-edge technologies. He also understands that education and innovation are critical to Iowa remaining in the forefront of a wide-range of fields like sustainable energy sources that preserve the state’s pristine environmental resources and distinctive architectural history.
