Iowa for Richardson Campaign Announces Statewide Leadership Committee

State Representative Marcie Frevert Joins Campaign to Organize for Caucus

EMMETSBURG, IA – State Representative Marcie Frevert of Emmetsburg today accepted a position on the Statewide Leadership Committee of the Richardson for President Campaign. Frevert, who has publicly endorsed Governor Bill Richardson for President, has already worked on behalf of the campaign throughout the North Central region of Iowa.

In her new role as a State Leader, State Representative Frevert will act as a pivotal contact for Bill Richardson in her community and throughout the state, working closely with the campaign to organize support for the January 3rd Caucus.

“What impresses me most about Governor Richardson is his lifetime of public service, including serving as a Congressman, Secretary of Energy, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and Governor of New Mexico,”  State Representative Frevert said.  “It is clear that he is the most qualified candidate to lead our country and restore our credibility within the international community. I am proud to endorse Governor Richardson for President and to join his Iowa leadership committee.”

The Statewide Leadership Committee of the Richardson for President Campaign includes elected officials, Democratic activists, union leadership, members of the business and professional community, as well as community leaders from across the state.

Governor Richardson, who was recently nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for the fifth time, said, “I am very honored and proud to have so many great, active Iowans joining my campaign. I know that their hard work and leadership will make a large impact on caucus day.”

“Every day on the campaign trail I see and hear the desire for a presidential candidate who represents both experience and change,” Richardson said.  “I am that candidate.  As President, on day one I will start solving the very real problems facing our country; I will end the war in Iraq, I will work towards solving our energy crisis and I will make sure that every American has access to universal health care.”
