September 1, 2021 | MEDIA RELEASE - IIPAC Endorses Michael Bousselot for HD 37 Race

DES MOINES, Iowa — The Iowa Association of Business and Industry’s (ABI) political action committee (IIPAC) is bestowing the Friend of Iowa Business endorsement upon Michael Bousselot for the forthcoming special election in Iowa House District 37. HD 37 includes most of Ankeny and rural parts of Polk County.

“Michael brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in both the private and public sectors. He supports lower taxes, less regulation and an environment where Iowa businesses and their employees can thrive. This makes him an ideal candidate for the Iowa Legislature and why IIPAC fully supports his candidacy,” said ABI Vice President of Public Policy JD Davis.

The nonpartisan IIPAC Board, comprised of IIPAC contributors, makes the Friend of Iowa Business selections. The board encourages voters to consider these endorsements when evaluating where candidates stand on business. 

Candidates are evaluated on their support for a competitive business climate and their focus on a regulatory climate conducive for job creation. Criteria included positions on issues based on interviews, stated approach to general business community concerns, voting records of incumbent candidates, and input from ABI members and IIPAC contributors.

Michael is a former Director of the Iowa Department of Management. He previously served as Chief of Staff to Governor Terry Branstad and Governor Kim Reynolds. He is also a licensed attorney and Certified Public Accountant.

The seat is currently vacant due to the recent passing of State Representative John Landon.

The special election takes place on Tuesday, September 14, 2021. IIPAC encourages individuals who live in HD 37 to cast their ballot for Michael Bousselot.
