December 14, 1997

Timothy McCown of Frederick announced his candidacy nTC Thursday for the 6th District congressional seat held by Roscoe G. Bartlett, a three-term Republican.

McCown, a Democrat and self-styled political novice, is co-owner of Guidelines Counseling Program in Frederick.

In announcing his candidacy, McCown expressed concern for individuals earning minimum wage, small farmers trying to cling to family farms, factory workers worried about losing their jobs in downsizing, and mothers worried about their children's education and drug abuse.

"Dr. Bartlett and his fellow Republicans have no solutions for these human concerns," McCown said.

McCown stressed creating better-paying and more secure jobs that promote family values; providing clean air and water; forest, wetland and wilderness preservation; and equal opportunity in education for all children.

He has worked for the Iowa Department of Social Services at the Iowa State Training School for Boys, the Psychiatric Institute of Montgomery County and the Seneca Melwood Treatment Center in Poolesville.

McCown, 47, has a bachelor's degree in U.S. history from the University of Iowa. He is married to Shelie J. Miller.
