After a close race in 2008, Kurt Hubler is again seeking the office of Representative for Iowa House District 99. Hubler grew up in the Council Bluffs area, where he was active in the city’s performing arts community. He chose a career in journalism after graduating from the University of Northern Iowa, and went on to serve as a reporter for National Public Radio affiliates in Cedar Falls, IA, Elkhart, IN, and Dallas, TX. Hubler received several awards for his coverage of stories ranging from human interest to all levels of politics.
In 2007, Hubler returned home to Council Bluffs to organize and lead his father’s, Rob, congressional bid in Iowa’s Fifth District. It was in March of 2008 when Kurt was approached to run for the seat in District 99, where he brought his campaign to within three points of victory.
