CHARLES CITY – Todd Prichard, Democratic Iowa State Representative for District 52, announced today another step in his possible quest to become Governor of Iowa.
“Today I announced the formation of a committee to explore a possible run for Governor of the state of Iowa. I know Iowa can do better than what we have seen during this legislative session. The current administration appears to have given up on creating quality jobs and growing wages in communities like Charles City, and we need a new vision for Iowa. Iowa needs fresh leadership with the vision to drive meaningful economic growth across the entire state, and I look forward to offering some new ideas as well as a new approach to getting things done for all Iowans. I am proud to have the advice and counsel of Marcia Nichols, Brad Anderson, Sue Dvorsky, Bob Dvorsky, David Dawson, and Keisha Cummings as I consider this campaign. Thank you all for your support.”
Mr. Prichard made the announcement via social media. He ha been making speeches around the state for weeks, measuring the level of support and enthusiasm from those listening. If successful, Prichard would succeed Terry Branstad’s hand-picked protege, Kim Reynolds, who will eventually take his seat when he assumes the job as United States ambassador to China.
