A Strong Voice For Rural Iowa

Bringing Experience to County Supervision

My experience in state government will help me to make informed decisions and enact policies that will benefit all of the residents of Linn County.

I am committed to addressing Linn County's most pressing issues, including​

This governor’s bill would hold harmless the pesticide companies, should  farmers, their family members, or anyone in the communities get cancer due to their products. No corporation should have immunity from lawsuits for medical expenses, loss of work, or loss of life, due to their products.


Iowa is number one in cancer cases. Molly is committed to doing the real work necessary to protect the health and well being of our communities. Putting people over politics— not bending to the will of corporate America.

A Quick FAQ

1) What does a County Supervisor do?

2) Why is Molly Donahue the best candidate for 2024?

What does your county supervisor do?

Supervisors are responsible for setting fiscal policies, establishing tax rates, and overseeing the county budget to ensure that essential programs and services are adequately funded. They make important decisions about health and social services, land use planning, and infrastructure development to meet the needs of the community. In addition to their policy-making duties, supervisors serve as liaisons to city councils, organizations, and county departments, fostering communication and collaboration. They also appoint citizens to serve on various boards, commissions, and committees, ensuring that the voice of the community is represented in county decision-making. Linn County supervisors are elected by district and serve staggered four-year terms. With over 700 employees, the Board of Supervisors plays a vital role in guiding the county's strategic direction and making decisions that impact the daily lives of Linn County residents. Their work is essential to maintaining a thriving, responsive, and responsible county government.

Why is Molly the best candidate?

While her opponent's background is primarily in the private sector and helping on her father’s campaign, Molly has been on the front lines of policy-making and advocacy for decades. As as teacher, Union leader, State Representative, and now State Senator, Molly has a first hand knowledge and understanding of the challenges facing Linn County families and a track record of fighting for her constituents. Whether she's standing up for landowner rights, pushing for better mental healthcare and healthcare, or advocating for rural communities, Molly puts people over politics every time. She has a track record of working with others in all of her experiences from the public school system, to the Capitol, as well as her boards and volunteer positions around Linn County. Molly gets things done, and she knows how to optimize the strengths of those working with her. In contrast, her opponent's experience in dog breeding, photography, online sales, marketing and graphic design for a small private college in Northwest Iowa, while valuable in some contexts, doesn't translate to the kind of policy expertise and community knowledge that the County Supervisor role demands. When you head to the polls, ask yourself: Who do you trust to fight for you and your family? Who has the experience and the commitment to make a real difference in our community? The answer is clear: Molly Donahue is the best choice for Linn County Supervisor.
