Statewide Iowa — The director of the Iowa Economic Development Authority is urging Iowans to “tell our story.” During a recent stop in Le Mars, Debi Durham told members of the Chamber of Commerce how our state has great potential and many opportunities, but we need to share that information with the rest of the world.

Durham says Governor Kim Reynolds approved a new ad blitz demonstrating all Iowa has to offer.

Durham says Iowa is often overlooked since many corporate officials regard it as simply as a “fly-over” state between both coasts. She says it’s good Iowa doesn’t have a negative image, but she says the problem is, we don’t have any type of image at all.

While Iowa is known for its rich agriculture base, she says we need to expand beyond the nation’s old-fashioned perceptions of farming.
