Statement from Speaker Grassley on the Passing of Rep. John Landon
(DES MOINES) -- Today at 3:45 pm, Representative John Landon (R-Ankeny) passed away surrounded by his family. Speaker Grassley has issued the following statement:
"Today, we lost a dear friend and dedicated public servant in Representative John Landon. The Iowa House and House District 37 were fortunate to have someone so dedicated to his work all the way until his final day. As far as public servants go, John was the very best of us. John was everything Iowa needs in its representatives: a strong leader, a hard worker, a great mind, and a humble servant. He will be sorely missed by all of us, but he is in a better place. Please join me and Iowa House Republicans in sending prayers to his wife Marvis and the rest of his family."
