Gary Kroeger is running for the Iowa State House in District 60, which includes Cedar Falls, Hudson, and Waterloo.

Kroeger was born and raised in Waterloo and Cedar Falls, where his father worked as an engineer for John Deere and his mother was a special education teacher in the public schools. His parents were members of a proud middle class who instilled their three sons with the values of hard work, the importance of a good education and a moral obligation to support equal rights and compassion for all. With a scholarship, affordable loans and an early morning job washing dishes, Kroeger was fortunate to attend and graduate from Northwestern University. For the next twenty years, Kroeger forged a career in the entertainment industry, which took him from Chicago to New York and, finally, Los Angeles.

While in Los Angeles, Kroeger pursued another lifelong dream and opened a restaurant while continuing to work in television.

In 2003, Kroeger decided to leave Los Angeles and the entertainment field and come home to the Cedar Valley. Despite Kroeger’s success in the industry, as the father of two sons, he decided it was important to raise them with those same “Iowa Values” that have guided him through life.
