Hubbell Begins Gubernatorial Campaign

Hubbell for Governor website

Another democratic candidate for Iowa governor will visit eastern Iowa and the Quad Cities this week. Fred Hubbell made his official announcement on Monday.

He is the former president of Equitable of Iowa life insurance company and served as director of the Iowa Department of Economic Development.

Hubbell is scheduled to appear in Davenport Wednesday at 6 pm at Greatest Grains on Harrison Street, and talk about education. His stops on Thursday will include Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, and Cedar Falls, plus an appearance in Dubuque in the afternoon at the Inspired Coffee Shop.  

Just last week, fellow democrat John Norris came to Davenport to talk about education on the final day of his announcement tour of Iowa. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
