(Glidden, Iowa) – Today, Iowa House Transportation Committee Chair Brian Best (R-Glidden) today announced he will not seek another term in the Iowa House of Representatives. Best has served the people of District 11 since 2015.
“It has been an honor to serve the people of District 11 and the state of Iowa," Best said. “I am grateful for the opportunity to have made a difference in the lives of others, and I am proud of the work we have accomplished together in the Statehouse.”
