Letter to the editor: Hanson thanks voters, outlines goals


To the editor:

I would like to thank the citizens of Dallas County for their support in the primary for re-election as county supervisor.

I am very proud of the fact that Dallas County is financially healthy and is a place where people want to live, work and play. We will continue to build on our progress, maintaining fiscal stability and low taxes, ensuring our tax dollars are spent wisely and providing quality services and a balanced budget.

As the county continues to grow, I am dedicated to finding solutions that Dallas County residents can support. This includes:

  • a public safety facility to assist Sheriff Leonard and the work of the Sheriff’s office and first responders,
  • a proposal to increase the membership from three to five elected supervisors,
  • improved road and bridge infrastructure,
  • use of technology and strategic planning to reduce costs and enhance services, opportunities and resources for county employees,
  • smart economic development and land use choices,
  • preservation of natural resources and quality of life.

I encourage the residents, property owners, county employees, business leaders, public officials and visitors of Dallas County to contact me with their ideas and suggestions to make our great county even better. My email address is mhansoniowa@gmail.com, and my phone number is 515-210-7008.

Mark A. Hanson, Waukee
Chairman, Dallas County Board of Supervisors


  1. Please make sure all voters are given a close, in-vicinity opportunity to vote on this safety facility. The prior referendum was very skewed to larger metro areas. We are all out here as citizens. Thank you.

  2. As a candidate for Dallas County Supervisor, I will vote to put on the ballot the referendum to increase the board of supervisors from three to five supervisors. The residents will then be able to vote up or down. No need to waste time gathering petition signatures.

    Julie Stewart
