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.

Consumer scam alert: the State Record Retrieval Board is not a state agency

If you receive a letter in the mail from the State Record Retrieval Board stating that “you need” a copy of your current property deed and “property profile,” and the company charges you an $87 processing fee, think twice before spending your money.

Your local county recorder, which is the official source for a certified deed, can provide the same certified document for $5. And many counties provide the same “property profile” information free of charge on county Web sites. The same information is also available at your county assessor’s office.
