Today, Assistant Woodbury County Attorney, James Loomis, launched his campaign to be the next Woodbury County Attorney. 



“Although my campaign is only days old, I am proud to have earned the endorsements of over 30 active and retired law enforcement officers,” Loomis said. “These officers recognize the need for new leadership in the County Attorney’s office. They know that I am committed to pursuing justice, that I’m dedicated to strengthening our partnership, and that I am capable of prosecuting any crime that happens in our community.” 


“During my discussions with law enforcement and community leaders, it is obvious that Woodbury County needs a County Attorney that will better communicate and be more engaged with outside agencies,” Loomis added. “I look forward to the opportunity to serve Woodbury County, repair these strained relationships and lead our office to ensure our community is safe.” 


“My 19 years of experience includes 14 years in the felony division, prosecuting the most violent crimes in Siouxland. I’ve handled the homicides, the shootings, the armed robberies, burglaries and sexual assaults,” said Loomis. “These tough cases have prepared me to lead this office. I have the experience to serve Woodbury County in this capacity.” 


As Assistant Woodbury County Attorney since 2003, James has helped keep Woodbury County families safe by holding criminals accountable, protecting victims of crime, and partnering with law enforcement.  


Born and raised on his family farm outside of Winterset, Iowa, James graduated from Winterset High School and went on to earn his undergraduate degree from Iowa State University. James went on to receive his Juris Doctorate at the University of Iowa College of Law. He lives on an acreage with his wife and five children outside of Bronson, Iowa.
