ORANGE CITY, Iowa – State Rep. Skyler Wheeler, R-Orange City, announced he will seek a fourth term to the Iowa House and run for re-election in 2022. He currently represents Iowa House District 4.
Wheeler plans to run in the newly drawn Iowa House District 3, which includes southern Sioux County and northern Plymouth County. Wheeler was first elected to the Iowa House in 2016.
“I’d like to thank the great people of Sioux County for the honor they have given me to represent them these last five years,” Wheeler said. “I look forward to getting to know the voters of Le Mars, Akron, and the rest of northern Plymouth County.”
Wheeler currently serves on the House Judiciary, Ways and Means, Local Government, and Justice Systems Appropriations Budget Subcommittee. In addition, he is the Vice Chair of the House Education Committee.
“Each year, Republicans in the House continue to push conservative legislation that will expand liberty and shrink government in our great state,” Wheeler added. “I’m proud to be one of those members, and a vocal one at that, pushing our conservative values and principles in Des Moines.”
“Even though we have accomplished a lot of great things these past few years, there is still more to do. We must continue our work to protect unborn babies, to eliminate the tax burden on hardworking Iowan’s and entrepreneurs, ensure every parent is empowered to make the best decisions they can for their child’s education, and to expand liberty while shrinking government,” he stated.
Wheeler, 28, is a graduate of Northwestern College in Orange City, where he lives with his wife Jess, his daughter Adalynn, and his son Stetson.
State Rep. Tom Jeneary, R-LeMars, who currently represents Iowa House District 5, was also drawn into the new Iowa House District 3. He has not yet announced re-election plans.
