Sarah Trone Garriott’s election to the Iowa State Senate has been confirmed by the completion of a recount.
“Scott Cirksena called me this afternoon to congratulate me on the race. I appreciate that he reached out personally, and I look forward to working with him as Mayor of Clive and a constituent in my district.”
“There’s a lot of work ahead of us to ensure Iowa steps up the fight against the COVID pandemic and helps get the Iowa economy back on track,” said Trone Garriott. “I will work with everyone at the Iowa Statehouse so that all Iowa children, no matter where they live, get a great education. We must make sure every person who lives in Iowa has a voice and the opportunity to build a better life here.”
“I’m thankful to the people of Senate District 22 for putting their trust in me. I promise to continue listening and learning from my constituents and take their concerns to the Statehouse,” said Trone Garriott. “I also want to thank the many volunteers who made my campaign possible. A competitive 3-way primary prepared me for the general election, and I thank my Democratic challengers Tricia Gavin and Michael Libbie for their strong campaigns.”
“The county auditors and election workers in Dallas and Polk Counties deserve praise for their outstanding work on this election,” Trone Garriott said. “Iowans can be proud of our state’s efficient, nonpartisan approach to elections.”
