Stewart to run for County Supervisor

On Monday, June 27 the Dallas County Democrats met for Nominating Convention. They voted to place Julie Stewart on the ballot for Dallas County Supervisor in the General Election in November.

Stewart is on the ballot despite there being no Democrats who were on the ballot during the Primary Election in early June.

Stewart is a resident of Waukee and a news release said that she wants to deliver a “fresh perspective” to the County.

“As our communities continue to expand and change, the challenges our county faces require strong, flexible leadership to drive progressive, forward-thinking solutions,” Stewart said in a news release. “Each community has a unique identity that makes Dallas County special. By working together, we can expand economic development and lead Iowa in conserving our environment.”

Stewart also touts a diverse background.

“Growing up on a Century Farm and raising my three sons on a farm gives me a solid understanding of rural life,” she said. “Moving to Waukee has enhanced my perspective of suburban life.”

Currently, Stewart is a substitute teacher for the Des Moines Schools and a tutor for elementary students at Huntington Learning Center in West Des Moines. Previously she has been an OFA Summer Organizer, campaign manager for Desmund Adams for Iowa Senate 22, Dallas County Democrat Chair, Third District Democrat Central Committee Member, State Democrat Central Committee Member and Chair of Senate 10 Progressives.
