MASON CITY – State Representative Sharon Steckman of Mason City announced today that she will seek re-election to the Iowa House of Representatives in House District 53 which includes Mason City, Rockwell and central Cerro Gordo County.

“Last session, we made great progress building Iowa’s skilled workforce, expanding access to affordable health care, and lowering property taxes for our local businesses,” said Steckman. “I’ll keep working hard to listen to the people of my district and keep focused on the issues important to them.”

Steckman is currently serving her third term in the Iowa House and serves as Ranking Member of the Education Committee. She is also a member of Environmental Protection and State Government Committees and the Education Budget Subcommittee.

“As Ranking Member of the House Education Committee and former educator, Rep. Steckman understands the issues facing our students, schools and families,” said House Democratic Leader Mark Smith. “We need Sharon’s leadership in the Iowa House.”

“It’s been a great honor serving the people of Mason City in the Iowa House and I look forward to another productive year,” said Steckman. “My top priority in the legislature has been working to guarantee that every child gets a quality education and graduates with the skills necessary to land a good-paying job and working towards. Creating those good paying jobs in Iowa is also a top priority.”

Steckman spent 30 years in the classroom and has since retired from the Mason City Community School District. She serves on the Tax Credit Interim Committee, on the MHEC (Midwest Higher Education Compact) Council, the local RSVP Board, and most recently joined the State IJAG board (Iowa Jobs for America’s Graduates), STEM Council and the Francis Lauer Youth Services Board. She and her husband, Alan reside in Mason City.

    Same deal with her as with Ragan. Term limits and enough spending is enough. That is all the two spend sisters know is spend, spend, spend. Three terms is enough. Time for someone new.
