(Des Moines, IA) Today, State Representative Quentin Stanerson (R-Center Point) announced that he will not seek re-election to the Iowa House in 2016.

“After much thoughtful deliberation, I have decided not to seek re-election, and pass the reigns on to a new leader.  My family and North Linn Schools have sacrificed much in order for me to serve, but now it is time for me to return home to devote more time and energy to them.  I am looking forward to spending more time with my family and not having to worry about missing any of my kid’s activities,” Stanerson said.

“I want to sincerely thank the people of District 95 in Buchanan and Linn counties for giving me the distinct honor of serving as their State Representative.”

Stanerson, a social studies teacher at North Linn High School, was first elected in 2012.  In the House, Stanerson serves as the Chairman of the Veterans Affairs Committee and had previously been the Vice Chairman of the Education Committee from 2013 to 2015. 

During his time in the House, Stanerson has overseen several major legislative accomplishments.  During his first session in the House, the General Assembly overhauled Iowa’s property tax system and developed an innovative education reform package.  Additionally, Stanerson continuously supported efforts to balance Iowa’s budget by spending less than the state collected in revenue, and refused to spend one-time money for ongoing expenses.

“I am confident that the work we accomplished during my tenure will benefit the citizens of Iowa and has made this state a great place to work and raise a family,” said Stanerson.

Speaker Select Linda Upmeyer (R-Clear Lake) stated that Stanerson’s leadership will be missed. 

“Rep. Stanerson’s experience and leadership have been of great significance to all members of the Legislature,” Upmeyer stated.  “He has been a tremendous asset to our caucus, his constituents, and the entire state of Iowa.”  

Stanerson will serve out the remainder of his term.
