First elected in 2018, Karin Derry is honored to serve Iowa House District 39. She and her husband have lived in Johnston for over 20 years, where we have raised their three children. 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.
Karin brings common sense values to the Statehouse and is working to build a better Iowa. That means creating an economy that supports the businesses that provide good-paying jobs, investing in public education, supporting a health care system that is both affordable and accessible, and making sure that Iowans have clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. It also means taking steps to address climate change and demanding a just and equitable society for all!
