We need to stand with Uber

Ever since Uber entered Des Moines it has been under attack. City officials are looking to pass an ordinance that will stop uberX and similar ridesharing services from operating in Des Moines. These decision makers reject innovation and are more interested in limiting the transportation options consumers have in Des Moines.

This is not a partisan issue. It is an Iowa issue. We need to educate these decision makers about what Uber means to us. We need to show them the benefits of having new and innovative transportation options in Des Moines.

It’s time for us to fight back!

If you want Uber to operate in Des Moines, then get on the phone and call the Mayor and City Council members and tell them to change the proposed regulations on ridesharing services. This is the single most important thing you can do. You can find their contact info by clicking here.

If you don’t want to call, send them an email. Share your opinion on Facebook and Twitter. And submit a letter to the editor of the Des Moines Register.

If we can’t make the Des Moines City Council see the light, then we will make them feel the heat.
