Waterloo councilman running for Iowa Senate

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Waterloo City Councilman Ron Welper, has announced he will run for the Senate District 11 seat which covers Waterloo, Evansdale, Elk Run Heights, Raymond and parts of rural Black Hawk County.

Welper, 62, served in the U.S. Navy and is a Viet Nam veteran and has served on the Waterloo City Council for nine years.

Welper says, "Like most Iowans, I am upset with the unaffordable increases in taxes and the irresponsible levels of spending that has lead to unbalanced budgets that do not reflect the true priorities and values of Iowans. Iowans are upset with the actions in Des Moines and they do not feel they are being listened to."

The seat is currently held by Democrat William Dotzler, Jr..
