Longtime public servant, Michael Bousselot, won the special nominating convention today and will be the Republican nominee for the special election for Iowa House District 37.

“I am honored to be the Republican nominee to fill the seat of late Representative John Landon,” said Bousselot. “These are big shoes to fill, but I intend to embody the character and dedication that John brought to this job. I believe parents know what’s best for their children. I have always made it a priority to listen to Iowans and I intend to take that same mentality to serving Ankeny in the Iowa House. 

Speaker of the Iowa House Pat Grassley congratulated Bousselot on his nomination.

“Michael Bousselot has been hard at work for Iowans alongside Governor Branstad and Reynolds for years. He’s proven his commitment to cutting taxes, responsible budgeting and protecting Iowa values. The people of Ankeny deserve a representative that will listen and act on their concerns, not an extreme liberal who continues to run on the same out-of-touch agenda, hoping for a different result. Michael Bousselot is the best person for the job and I’m eager to get to work ensuring Ankeny voters know who he is and what he stands for.”

Bousselot currently serves as Director of Iowa’s Department of Management in Governor Kim Reynolds’ administration. Bousselot previously served as chief of staff, legal counsel, and as a policy advisor in the Branstad – Reynolds administration. A Davenport native, Bousselot lives in Ankeny with his wife Holly.  

He graduated from the University of Iowa with undergraduate and graduate degrees in accounting and with a law degree from Drake University Law School.
