Des Moines, IA Author and Former Senator Publishes Political Call to Action

May 06, 2017 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
No Surrender: Building a Progressive Agenda for Iowa with the Five Securities, a new book by Jack Hatch, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

In an era of endless social media carping, the notion of why public service matters may seem quaint or even naive to some. This book is about why, for progressive Democrats, nothing could be further from the truth. Dreaming of ways to improve the human condition for work-a-day Americans and their families is absolutely essential to our purpose and our survival as a political organization. The stakes are always the highest possible ones: the fate of our individual communities and the country we love. And the enemy is always the same: a status quo that tells us 'not you,' 'not yet,' 'not that way,' and 'not now.'

"Jack Hatch provides a thought-provoking and challenging look into Iowa's future. His is a call for progressive action. He pulls no punches in calling for a new direction and approach for the Democratic Party if its leaders are to become Iowa's leaders. A "must read" for anyone considering a run for higher office." - Former Governor of Iowa Tom Vilsack
