In December, local Democrats selected Assistant Floyd County Attorney Todd Prichard of Charles City to be their candidate in the January 22, 2013 special election.
The special election was called following the resignation of Rep. Brian Quirk.
“I’m honored to be selected and look forward to listening to the concerns of the people of Chickasaw, Cerro Gordo, and Floyd Counties,” said Prichard. “While I know this is a short campaign, I will work hard to meet the voters of District 52 and earn their support on January 22.”
In an effort to connect with the citizens of Chickasaw, Cerro Gordo, and Floyd Counties, Assistant Floyd County Attorney Todd Prichard of Charles City launched his web page and Facebook page for the District 52 special election on January 22, 2013. Constituents can learn more about Todd and his family as well as submit questions directly to Todd.
In addition to serving as an assistant county attorney, Prichard is a member of the Iowa National Guard. He started his service in the Army in 1996 and has been deployed four times, including a tour in Iraq. Prichard attended the University of Iowa for his undergraduate degree and law school.
“My top priority will be growing Iowa’s middle class and making sure our kids get the best education in the world,” said Prichard, who has three children of his own. “We need to guarantee that every child in Iowa will get a quality education and graduates with the skills necessary to land a good-paying job and support their own family.”
“As a National Guard member, I’m also committed to helping veterans and members of our military return to their community and be successful. Whether it’s help matching their military skills with a job or supporting military families during deployment, I will do all I can to make the lives of our veterans a bit easier,” added Prichard.
Prichard and his wife, Ann, have three children and attend St. John Lutheran Church in Charles City. He serves on the YMCA Board of Directors and is also a member of the Charles City Lions Club.
“I want to be open and accessible to all the people of this district and earn their support for state representative,” said Prichard. “In this shortened campaign, it is a challenge to meet every voter at their door but I look forward to meeting as many constituents as possible over the next month. I encourage anyone with questions or suggestions to visit my webpage, connect with me on Facebook, or just give me a call.”
