Rep. Dave Maxwell announced last week his re-election bid for the new Iowa House of Representatives District 53. Rep. Maxwell currently serves House District 76 consisting of all of Poweshiek County and 12 townships in Iowa County. After the re-districting in 2021, Poweshiek County remains whole, but the Iowa County part of District 76 was replaced by a comparable piece of Tama County and is now District 53 of the Iowa House. Representatives serve their current districts through Dec. 31, 2022.
“I think I have done a very good job serving District 76 and I regard myself as a “common sense conservative” and as such I can work across the aisle when needed and also work with my Republican colleagues,” noted Rep. Maxwell.
Rep. Maxwell was born and raised in rural Deep River, attended Deep River Independent grade/junior high, then high school at Montezuma Community.
He studied two years at the University of Northern Iowa and two years at Iowa State University, when his schooling was interrupted by military service.
“After three years in the United States Army, one of them spent in Viet Nam, I returned to Iowa and worked for my cousin in the farm drainage business,” Rep. Maxwell said. “A few years later, I started Maxwell Tiling, Inc. and have been in business in the same location for the past 47 years.”
Rep. Maxwell is married to Kristin Armstrong and between them, have four children, nine grandchildren, and four great grandchildren. Rep. Maxwell belongs to the United Church of Deep River, LICA, AGC and is a member and past commander of the Deep River American Legion Post #296.
