To the editor:

I appreciate the support my campaign received during the recent election. Thank you for re-electing me as State Representative.

Thank you to campaign donors and volunteers. Your efforts secured a wide-margin of victory on Election Day.

Congratulations to all candidates who were successful in their efforts and thanks to everyone who stepped forward to run for office. Thanks, Gabe, for a spirited, yet respectful, discussion of the issues. I wish you and your family the best. I look forward to our ‘post-election dinner’ and it’s on me.

Again, I am grateful for the opportunity to continue serving as State Representative, this time in the new House District 29. I’m proud to represent my hometown, Newton, as well as Baxter, Mingo, Kellogg, Ira, Valeria, Lambs Grove, and Oakland Acres.

I’m especially excited to represent the new towns in my district; Colfax and Prairie City. To my former constituents in Lynnville, Sully, Reasnor, and Killduff, I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to represent and meet you.

I will continue to work for the benefit of the entire county, and I will build a good working-relationship with your new State Representative Greg Heartsill.

While the legislative session begins in January, serving in the Iowa House is a year-round job. Feel free to contact me anytime at (641) 521-9260 or dankelley@mchsi.com, or visit my website at www.electkelley.com.
