KRESSIG TO SEEK RE-ELECTION
Cedar Falls, Iowa -- State Representative Bob Kressig, D-Cedar Falls, announced today that he will seek re-election to the Iowa House of Representatives in 2010.
“I’ve enjoyed listening to and serving the people of Cedar Falls. In these tough economic times, we must continue to support middle class families and create good-paying jobs. As chair of the Economic Development Appropriations Subcommittee, I’ve worked to expand support for small businesses and partner with businesses in our community to create jobs,” said Kressig. “I’m also proud of my record supporting the University of Northern Iowa to keep tuition affordable, educate the next generation of teachers, and help businesses in Iowa succeed.”
Kressig is serving his third term in the Iowa House of Representatives. He is currently serving as the Chair of Economic Development Appropriations Subcommittee, Vice-Chair of Local Government, and also is a member of Appropriations, Commerce, Environmental Protection, and Public Safety committees.
“Iowans expect us to focus our efforts on helping Main Street, not Wall Street. We will balance the budget without raising taxes while doing all we can to support k-12 education and keep higher education affordable for middle class families,” said Kressig.
Kressig is the former Chairman of the Cedar Falls Planning and Zoning Commission. He is also a current member of Veridian Credit Union Board of Directors. Bob also serves on the Cedar Valley’s Promise Policy Board, the University of Northern Iowa’s Metal Casting Center Board of Directors, North Star Community Services Board of Directors, and was appointed by the legislature to serve on the Research and Development School Advisory Committee. He and his wife Liz have two children.
