Gail Stanton started this petition to Governor Kim Reynolds and

To Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus) has been classified as a global pandemic. State and federal officials are encouraging people who feel sick to stay home, but many workers already struggle to make rent or mortgage payments. The choice to skip work for the sake of community health could leave them and their families homeless. In order to protect the health and housing security of our community, we, the undersigned, call on Governor Reynolds to act now so workers won't have to make that choice. Specifically, we call for a suspension of all rent, mortgage, and essential utility payments (gas, electric& water) for 2 full months to allow people to do what they need to in order to take care of themselves, their loved ones, and the community. If and when we are required to shelter in place, these bare essentials will become a necessity. With many jobs closed down, most leaving employees without pay, it will be impossible for Iowans to pay these critical bills. The legacy of every public official currently serving will be determined in the next few months. It's time to act now, and choose the right side of history. Choose health and safety. Choose the people.
