MASON CITY – Congressman Steve King was in Mason City today for the grand opening of one of his Fourth District congressional offices.
“I was pleased to cut the ribbon to mark the opening of the Mason City office today in order to ensure that my staff is accessible to new constituents,” said King.
Former Iowa legislator Merlin Bartz is in charge of King’s Mason City office, located in the Peterson Plaza near downtown Mason City.
Local politicians were on hand, as well as a large contingent of Chamber of Commerce members.
“We welcome having this extension office here in North Iowa,” Mayor Eric Bookmeyer said.
“We are available and ready to assist my constituents so that they have the information and resources they need. By opening this new office in Mason City, along with the other offices across the Fourth District, we are making sure that happens.”
Rep. King has been named as a possible candidate for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by the retiring Tom Harkin. King has indicated that he has not made a decision yet as to whether or not he will run.
