MASON CITY – Iowa Representative (D) Sharon Steckman spoke to the Mason City council during the public listening post on the charges of racism leveled against North Iowans and residents of Mason City from Prestage Foods’ Ron Prestage after his hog plant was turned down.

Mrs. Steckman confronted the “racist” label that was put on Mason City in a Des Moines Register article. She said “Ron Prestage labeled us racist” and said “why would we welcome him back” after what he said.

She also decried the short timeline since March 21 in which the Prestage Foods development was considered.
