New legislator elected in House District 4
January 8, 2015
The Iowa House Republicans added another member to their caucus on Tuesday with the election of John Kooiker. Rep-elect Kooiker is from the northwest Iowa town of Boyden. He replaced former Rep. Dwayne Alons (R-Hull) who died in December. The Legislature will be one member short when it begins Monday because former Rep. Mark Costello (R-Imogene) was recently elected to the Iowa Senate in a special election. Another special election will take place to fill the Iowa House seat.
