Dan Trelka today announced his support of Ryan Howard for Iowa House District 60.

“Ryan and I attend the same church. As I have gotten to know Ryan and his wife, we have become friends,” said Trelka, retired Chief of the Waterloo Police Department and candidate for Black Hawk County Sheriff. “Our families share a passion for the care of children in our community.”

Howard has received several Iowa Governor’s Volunteer Awards and has been nominated for a Mayors’ Volunteer Award. He was also recognized as the 2018 United Way Volunteer of the Year.

Ryan and his wife operate a DHS-registered in-home Child Care and are registered foster parents. Howard currently serves the Cedar Valley through youth mentoring, supporting the local child care and mental health coalitions, and serving on the Cedar Valley United Way Board of Directors. Ryan is also on his church’s business advisory team.

Howard works at John Deere in supply management, where he helps businesses improve their processes and operations.

Through his experience and performance as a community volunteer, business owner and his career at Deere, Ryan Howard has proven to the community that he has the integrity, passion and vision necessary to be the next State Representative for District 60. Iowa House District 60 includes parts of Cedar Falls, Waterloo and Hudson.

Citing Howard’s desire to serve the community, Trelka said, “I fully support Ryan’s political endeavor to make a difference in the Cedar Valley.”
