Mike Gronstal, from Council Bluffs, has been the Senate Democratic Leader since 1997. First elected to office in 1982, Gronstal served one term in the Iowa House (1983-85), and is currently in his seventh term in the Senate. He is the State Democratic Leader in the Iowa Senate and has been a lifelong advocate for public education and smart politics.


We are fortunate to have Mike Gronstal represent us, our students, our schools and our profession. In the current political climate it is vital that you understand that we need YOU. Your time, your talent, and--eventually--your treasure will be needed to make sure that we reverse the trend of legislators who are willing to sell out our children for corporate tax cuts.

Mike Gronstal on Jobs & the Economy

Good paying jobs are the key to a strong Iowa economy. In 2007, the legislature passed the first increase in the minimum wage in ten years benefiting over 250,000 workers.
We also created the Iowa Power Fund, a $100 million initiative to make Iowa a world leader in renewable energy research and production. To ensure Iowa's leadership in alternative fuels and to further strengthen Iowa's workforce, we will continue to expand training programs at our community colleges.
