Black Hawk County Attorney Tom Ferguson has announced his plans to seek re-election.
Tom Ferguson, who was first elected to the the office in 1990, made the announcement Monday morning.
“It’s been an honor and a privilege to serve the county in one of the most challenging and important positions in law enforcement,” Ferguson said in a written statement.
The county attorney oversees the criminal, juvenile, civil, fine collection and victim/witness divisions, as well as serving as the prosecuting attorney on major cases.
Of his accomplishments in 23 years in office, Ferguson highlighted establishing and expanding the Child Protection Center at Allen Hospital and implementing a delinquent fines program that resulted in the collection of more than $15 million owed to the state.
Ferguson says he also continues to advocate for the return of the mental health and drug courts in Black Hawk County, which recently ended due to lack of funding.
