Former County Supervisor Seeks Iowa House Seat

By Staff | Apr 15, 2010

WEST BEND—Lannie Miller, former Palo Alto County Supervisor, announced today he is running for the Iowa House in District 7. The district is comprised of Emmet and Palo Alto Counties and Northern Kossuth County. 

MIller is currently a farmer as well as an over-the-road truck driver. He served 12 years as a County Supervisor and 18 years on the West Bend-Mallard School Board.

“I feel this is pretty good training for confronting Iowa’s challenges in the Legislature,” said Miller.

Miller has also served the community through his work on various boards including the County Economic Development Board, the Hospital Licensing Board, and the Season Center Mental Health Board and the Enterprise Zone Board. 

“I’ve seen firsthand the challenges facing our rural communities. I know that jobs are hard to come by, families are having a difficult time making ends meet and our schools are struggling,” said Miller. “Iowans are resilient, hard-working people and in adversity they always seem to come through.”

 “Lannie has committed much of his life to service to Northwest Iowa. He is used to putting his community first and listening to his neighbors,” said House Republican Leader Kraig Paulsen. “I know he will work tirelessly and be a strong voice in the Iowa House.”

  “I have a lifetime of experience farming and trucking and doing every volunteer community service project I could get my hands on. I want to go down to Des Moines, do the people’s business in the Iowa House and come back to West Bend to listen and learn and keep my ears open to what the people in District 7’s needs are.”

The election will be held in November.
