A small delegation of leaders from the city of Perry’s government administration met Tuesday at the Capitol Building in Des Moines with Sen. Jake Chapman, the District 10 legislator who represents Perry in the Iowa general Assembly.
Chapman is the ranking member on the Iowa Senate Appropriations Committee. He also sits on the Commerce, Labor and Business Relations, State Government and Ways and Means Committees.
Chapman works as the chief operating officer in a private ambulance company owned by his father, Dallas County Supervisor Kim Chapman. The younger Chapman broke ranks with his Republican colleagues this year when he voted against Gov. Terry E. Branstad’s Medicaid privatization plan.
An Eagle Scout and founder of the Young Republicans of Dallas County, Chapman was born in Des Moines and now lives in rural Adel with his wife, Jennifer, and their four children.
