(Monticello) – Rep. Lee Hein (R-Monticello) has announced he intends to run for re-election in House District 96.
Hein is the third generation to work on his family farm operation, growing corn and soybeans along with raising hogs and cattle. He has been very active in the Iowa Farm Bureau, the Iowa Farm Business Association, and the Jones County Pork Producers and Cattlemen’s Association.
Hein will continue his focus on job creation, limited government spending, and strengthening Iowa agriculture.
“I have been working to make sure the state does not spend more than it takes in and gives the taxpayers a seat at the table again,” said Hein. “While our state’s economy is improving, we must do all that we can to get government out of the way and give employers the opportunity to begin hiring again.”
Hein has previously served on the Monticello School Board for nine years, serving as president for five. In the House, Hein is the Vice Chair of the Agriculture committee and also serves on the Environmental Protection, State Government and Ways and Means committees as well as the Justice Systems Appropriations Subcommittee.
Lee and his wife, Jacky, have two grown children.
