Gruenhagen Running for Iowa Senate
A man from Walcott is running for the Iowa Senate. Kerry Gruenhagen operates a grain farm in rural Scott and Muscatine counties, and is a Republican candidate in Senate District 41.
If elected, he says he'll work for tax relief for working families, and support agriculture and small, rural communities. "The principal role of government is protecting its people. So, we must continue to support law enforcement in Iowa while we combat increasing crime rates and work to keep our communities safe.”
He's a former president of the Muscatine County Farm Bureau.
The new 41st Senate District is currently represented by Davenport Democrat Jim Lykam who has not yet decided whether to run for re-election.
