Daniel Lundby to seek re-election for state rep position

Posted: Updated:
MARION (KWWL) -

A state representative for District 68 announced he will seek re-election in 2014 on Wednesday.

Daniel Lundby, who is in his first term, has served on the appropriations, environmental protection, local government and natural resources committees as well as the education appropriations subcommittee.

“It’s been a great honor serving the people of Linn County and Marion in the Iowa House," Lundby said in a written statement. "The most rewarding experience has been listening and getting to know the people of my district.

"When the Legislature worked together and put politics aside, we had great results – reducing property taxes for businesses, improving education, protecting our natural resources, and expanding affordable health care to more Iowans," he added.

District 68 includes Marion, Bertram, Ely and surrounding areas of Linn County.

Lundby is the son of the late Mary Lundby, who served in the Iowa House of Representatives from 1987 to 1995 and then the Iowa Senate from 1995 to 2009 before dying of complications from a three-year battle with cervical cancer.
