State Representative Todd Prichard of Charles City announced today that he will be stepping down as the Iowa House Minority Leader.  Prichard served as leader for three legislative sessions and House Democrats will choose another leader on June 14th, 2021.

“It’s been a great honor to serve as leader of the Iowa House Democrats the last three years. After conversations with my family, it’s time for me to step aside and allow a new member of our caucus to lead. I know my caucus will continue to hold Governor Reynolds and Republican lawmakers accountable and fight for common sense, progressive values at the Statehouse,” said Prichard.

Rep. Prichard was elected to his 5th term in the Iowa House last year and will serve out his term as State Representative. He is a Davenport native, small business owner, attorney, and a Lt. Colonel in the Army Reserves.

The 2022 Legislative Session starts on Monday, January 10.  For more information, log on to
