A Davenport realtor wants to serve in the Iowa House. Thursday Republican Sean Hanley announced his candidacy for House District 89, which covers parts of west and central Davenport.
Currently it's represented by Democrat Monica Kurth who won a special election in 2017, and re-election in 2018.
Hanley is a member of the board of directors for both area realtors’ associations and second chance housing, which works with homeless veterans. He volunteers as a mentor and instructor for One Eighty and Junior Achievement in Davenport, and is a former volunteer firefighter and EMT.
If elected, he promises to reduce government regulations on business, saying "For every new regulation, we should be looking at eliminating two non-essentials. It is time to move forward in spurring job growth, improving our schools, and lessening the burden on hard-working taxpayers.”
