CEDAR RAPIDS – Democratic Rep. Eric Gjerde is seeking re-election this year to a second term in the Iowa House from a new district - House 74 - that encompasses parts of Cedar Rapids and Marion.
Gjerde, 43, was first elected in 2020 to an open seat. In his first term he has served on the Agriculture, Education, Rules and Administration, State Government, Veterans Affairs, and Ways and Means committees.
“I’m proud of what we have accomplished together in the Statehouse, (but) we have more work to do to champion Iowa’s kids and fund our public schools, ensure opportunities for hardworking families, and increase transparency and accountability in the state Legislature,” he said.
Gjerde is a special education teacher and coach in the Cedar Rapids schools, and has volunteered at the Linn County Sheriff’s Office as a special deputy.
He and his wife, Amy, also an educator in Cedar Rapids schools, have three daughters who attend Linn-Mar schools.
State representatives serve two-year terms and are paid $25,000 a year plus a daily food and lodging stipend while the Legislature is in session.
