REINBECK — Dennis Evans of Reinbeck, a MidWestOne Bank vice president and trust officer, has announced his intention to run for Iowa House District 50 as a Democrat.
The seat is currently held by Pat Grassley of rural New Hartford.
District 50 covers southern Butler County, all of Grundy County, and northern Hardin County.
“In my 40-year career as a trust officer, my goal was to listen to my clients and discover their goals and ambitions. If elected to the Iowa House, I believe that would be my duty as well. I have a deep passion to serve and make the world around me better and more inclusive. I’ve seen firsthand how hard it is for the middle class to get ahead, get a handle on medical costs, and achieve the American Dream,” Evans said in a press release.
Evans said Iowans deserve affordable and accessible health care, and representation that is more transparent, more honest, and more effective.
“I will be a voice for the importance of a sound education so our children can have the same opportunities we had growing up in Iowa,” he said.
Dennis and his wife, Marilyn, have four grown sons and seven grandchildren.
