Republican Party of Iowa Co-Chair Linda Upmeyer released the following statement in response to the death of Iowa House Representative John Landon: 

“John Landon took the weight of the role as a legislator seriously. He knew what it meant for the people of Ankeny to trust him, and he never took that for granted. 

“I think what John loved most about being a state legislator was when the school children and other constituents from Ankeny would visit the Capitol. He loved showing them their state Capitol, and all the promise it holds.

“That’s who John was. A humble, supportive and genuine man. A quiet but fierce leader.

“He leaves behind a tremendous legacy of service. My thoughts and prayers are with Marvis and the entire Landon family.”
