Northwest Iowa — Former Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn and Alta-Aurelia school superintendent Lynn Evans, of Aurelia, has filed papers to run for the Iowa Senate.
The Republican will run for election in Iowa Senate, District 3, which includes O’Brien, Osceola, Cherokee, Buena Vista, and parts of Clay counties.
Evans says that during his career, he’s had the opportunity to lead school districts and serve communities in O’Brien, Osceola, Buena Vista and Cherokee counties. He says he cares deeply for these communities and the future of our state. As a long time resident and native of Northwest Iowa, he says he shares the values and priorities of these communities. Evans says he’d be honored to serve as their voice in Des Moines.
Evans is a native of Aurelia, and a graduate of Aurelia High School. He and his wife Midge reside in Aurelia.
Evans says that some of his priorities will focus on growing the state’s rural economy, improving the state’s educational system, increasing access to mental health services, and protecting our civil liberties.
