Congressman Loebsack to visit Knoxville

Congressman Dave Loebsack from Mr. Vernon, representing the Second District of Iowa, will be in Knoxville Thursday May 19th. Mayor Don Zoutte says the Congressman will be here to meet with local officials, and business and industry leaders. The informal session will begin at Tasos at noon on the 19th, and then will move to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum for a tour. The Second District currently covers much of southeastern Iowa, but not Marion County. However, recent redistricting has thrown Loebsack and fellow Democrat Bruce Braley of Waterloo into a new First Congressional District, which has led to speculation of the possibility of one or the other changing residences, hoping to represent a different constituency without competing directly with each other in a primary.
