Rep. Heartsill won't seek re-election

Rep. Greg Heartsill, R-Columbia, announced Wednesday he will not seek re-election.

“My family has experienced many changes in recent years, and are now entering new stages in life," Heartsill said After consulting with them, I have decided to shift my focus there."

Heartsill is serving his third term in the Iowa House, representing the 28th District, which includes areas of Jasper, Marion and Lucas counties.

“I have enjoyed building relationships with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle. That has made all the difference in getting legislation passed that is meaningful to Iowans," he said. "It has truly been an honor to serve in this capacity.”
