Former Winneshiek County Supervisor Steve McCargar is announcing he will be running for the Iowa House of Representatives in District 55. The district includes portions of Winneshiek, Fayette and Clayton counties.
McCargar served as county supervisor in 1991-1992. He was a co-manager at Oneota Food Coop for 25 years, helped start Hometown Taxi in 1987 and is currently a pre-school teacher and farmers market manager in Decorah.
A news release about McCargar's candidacy says his focus will be on quality of life issues for rural Iowans. "What kind of world will we leave our children?" is the question McCargar thinks the legislature should address. He says that question will be the cornerstone of his campaign proposals.
