Megan Hess To Seek Re-Election

Spencer, IA–State Representative Megan Hess announced her intention to seek re-election today. Hess, a Republican, currently represents Iowa House District 2, which includes all of Clay and Palo Alto Counties as well as southern Dickinson County.

“It is an honor to represent the residents of House District 2,” Hess stated, “I do not take the responsibility lightly.  That being said, I am grateful for the support of my friends and family.”

“The legislature made great strides during the 2013 session,” Hess elaborated. “We successfully tackled the largest property tax cut in the history of the State of Iowa, comprehensive education reform, and made it clear Iowa’s doors are open to business.”

“The 2014 session started off with a productive, focused and efficient tone,” Hess continued. “I have introduced several bills to address issues brought to me by constituents in House District 2.”

The Primary Election is scheduled to take place on June 3, with the General Election on November 4.

Hess recently became engaged to Will Jones, of rural Sioux Rapids. The couple plans to make their home in southern Clay County on the Jones family farm after their wedding this summer.
