SHELL ROCK - Senate Republican Leader Bill Dix, R-Shell Rock, announced his intentions this morning to seek re-election to his Iowa Senate District 25 seat
Meeting this morning with members of the Butler County Rural Electric Cooperative and Butler County Farm Bureau, Senator Dix took the opportunity to share the news with neighbors and friends in his home county.
"I hear from Iowans on a daily basis," Senator Dix said. "They share their stories and concerns about burdensome taxes, limiting the scope of government and creating exciting career opportunities to keep their children in Iowa. I couldn't agree more. I am running again for the Iowa Senate to help create a legacy of opportunity for all Iowans.
Senator Dix is running for his second term in the Iowa Senate, where he serves as ranking member of the Rules committees and on the Labor and Business committee.
"There is a lot of work still to be done on behalf of Iowans such as easing the tax burden on Iowa, reigning in spending and crafting policies that entice companies to expand and relocate in our great state," Dix said. "That is the government people expect, the representation they deserve and the leadership they elected us to provide."
Senator Dix and his wife Gerri have three children, and operate a family farm near Shell Rock.
