Members of the Democratic Party from both Woodbury and Plymouth County voted to unanimously nominate Dr. Todd Wendt of LeMars as their candidate for the special election to be held on December 12, 2017.
“It is an honor for me to be nominated as the Democratic candidate for Iowa Senate District 3 by the county precinct delegates from Plymouth and Woodbury counties. I’ve spent my life working for families from all sides of the political aisle. If elected, I will continue that path to work to end the gridlock and turmoil that plagues us from the State House in Des Moines.”
Todd was born and raised in Sioux City and has spent the past 17 years as superintendent of schools in LeMars. During his time as superintendent he was very active in following the state legislature. Todd is the son of late State Representative Roger Wendt.
After working with students, parents, employees, board members, and communities the past 34 years, Todd is ready to take his commitment to working for others to another level. He wants to work at the policy level to restore the legislative commitment to providing a quality public education for all, implementing responsible fiscal and tax policy, protecting the rights of individuals, and working together on Iowa’s priorities.
