(Cedar Falls, IA) Black Hawk County native Bonnie Sadler Wednesday announced her run for the Iowa Senate. She is seeking the Senate District 30 seat, which serves Cedar Falls, Hudson and a portion of western Black Hawk County.
Sadler, a mother of two, was raised on a farm near Dunkerton. After graduating from Dunkerton High School and later Upper Iowa University, she began her career in the health care industry. She is Vice President of Business Development and a Shareholder at NuCara Pharmacy and Home Medical, a company she has been with for the past 17 years.
Health care is an issue that concerns Sadler, and helped play a role in her decision to run for the Senate seat.
“It is important Iowans receive quality outcomes as their health care costs continue to grow,” Sadler said. “I have spent nearly two decades in the health care industry and believe my life experiences can be advantageous serving you in the Iowa Senate.”
Sadler was recently appointed to the Black Hawk County Board of Health. She is active in the community, serving as an Ambassador with the Greater Cedar Valley Alliance & Chamber and as board president of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Iowa. She is past president of the Iowa Alliance in Home Care.
Education and responsible budgeting practices also are important issues to Sadler as she makes her Senate District 30 run.
“It is imperative the state manages its budget responsibly, much like Iowa families do on a daily basis,” Sadler said. “As a mother and business owner, I understand the importance of not spending more money that we take in and prioritizing our needs. This commonsense approach is one I will apply to our state budget when trusted with the hard-earned tax dollars of my fellow Iowans.”
Senate Republican Leader Bill Dix, R-Shell Rock, said Bonnie’s expertise in healthcare and business will benefit her fellow Iowans in the State Senate.
“Bonnie’s expertise in healthcare will serve Iowans well in the State Senate. Bonnie will work to help Iowa become the healthiest state in the nation, while making sure Iowans have quality outcomes from their healthcare. Bonnie will treat the state budget like she does her business and personal budgets – by using responsible budgeting practices to make sure our state is in a healthy financial position for the future,” Dix said.
