Kelley focuses on wind energy, jobs, education
In 1989, Dan Kelley began his foray into politics as senior class president at Newton Senior High School. But in 2010, the untimely death of Newton Democrat Paul Bell caused Kelley to step up from his leadership role in the Jasper County Democratic Party onto the ballot for the District 29 seat in the Iowa House of Representatives.
Now, after his first term, Kelley once again will be facing Newton Republican Gabe Swersie for the chance to represent Jasper County in Des Moines. The local real estate agent and DJ service owner said he is focused on promoting “the industries that have chosen to make Jasper County their homes,” which include wind energy and bio diesel companies, and bringing new jobs and industries to the county.
“The challenge is to better local economic development,” he said. “The unemployment rate is improving, but it’s time to bring more jobs to Jasper County.”
