By Staff | Mar 16, 2010

DES MOINES – State Representative Marcie Frevert of Emmetsburg announced today that she will not seek another term in the Iowa House this fall. Frevert has served in the House since 1997 and represents District 7, which includes Palo Alto, Clay and part of Kossuth County.

“It has been a true honor to serve the people of northern Iowa for the last 14 years. First as a school teacher and then as a legislator, I’m proud of my work ensuring Iowa kids get a quality education and have an opportunity to live and succeed in rural Iowa,” said Frevert.

“As a member of the House Environmental Protection Committee, I’m deeply proud of my work over the last few years improving our water quality through initiatives like the Surface Water Protection and increased funding for REAP. I’m also proud that we worked with Iowa farmers to eradicate pseudorabies,” added Frevert.

“After retiring from the classroom, the Legislature was another opportunity for me to improve the lives of children in our community. From strong support for community colleges and library services to better teacher pay and expanded preschool, I know we’ve made a difference for many families and students,” said Frevert. “I look forward to spending more time with my husband Bill and our children and grandchildren.”

Rep. Frevert is serving her seventh term in the Iowa House. She is Chair of the Administrative Rules Review Committee. She also serves on the State Government, Environmental Protection, and Ways and Means committees, as well as the Education Appropriations Subcommittee.
