Essential Estrogen: Did you hear? Iowa might soon have another female legislator!

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Late Wednesday night, following a special nominating convention, Linn
County committee persons in Cedar Rapids precincts 1 through 11 chose
Kirsten Running-Marquardt as their candidate in the special Iowa House
District 33 race that is scheduled for Nov. 24. Two days later,
Running-Marquardt has issued her first official campaign statement,
pledging to make flood recovery in Cedar Rapids a top priority. "After
the devastating 2008 flood, Cedar Rapids has the opportunity to come
back better than ever and I'm excited to be a part of the future of
Cedar Rapids," Running-Marquardt said in the prepared statement. "Our
community is grateful for the support from the Iowa Legislature for
recovery initiatives like IJOBS, unmet needs assistance and Jumpstart
programs. However, we know there is more work to do and I will fight
for continued support to give flood survivors the help, dignity and
respect they deserve."
