Representative Karin Derry
House District 39
Karin Derry is a resident of Johnston and a wife and mother of three. Karin is an attorney and has served her community as a volunteer on the Primary Health Care Board of Directors, Iowa Dependent Adult Protective Advisory Council, Central Iowa AIDS Project Board and with St. James Lutheran Church in Johnston.
As the daughter of Iowa small business owners, Karin grew up seeing the sacrifice her parents made to run a successful business that paid employees a good wage. Karin decided to run for the Iowa House to help build a better Iowa. That means building an economy with living wage jobs, balancing our state’s budget, investing in educating all of our children, providing a health care system that is both affordable and accessible, and making sure that Iowans have clean air to breath and clean water to drink.
