Scott Heldt officially became a candidate for the Iowa House of Representatives Monday after filing his paperwork with Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate.
Heldt delivered hundreds of nomination signatures to the Secretary of State, the result of months of grassroots groundwork for his campaign across House District 20, which includes all of Adair and Guthrie counties and parts of Cass and Dallas counties.
“This is an important day for our campaign,” Heldt said Monday. “We’ve been working hard, connecting with hundreds of folks across this district to build a strong base of support. Today, we officially entered the race and are looking forward to carrying that momentum into the early stages of this cycle. I’m very humbled and honored by the support I have received and will continue working hard to earn support across the district.”
Heldt, a Perry native, was a clerk in the state’s lower house during the 2015 session. The PHS graduate earned a bachelor’s degree in public policy and ethics at the University of Iowa, picking up a certificate in business entrepreneurship on the side.
“It’s great we have hit this benchmark of the campaign with so much support behind us,” Heldt said, “but it’s going to take each and every day to get across the finish line. There is just too much on the line for Iowans to come in second place in this race.”
