· 8:39am September 20th, 2013
Iowa State Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald, during a meeting in Des Moines recently, was speaking to several people, when he mentioned to Rep. Dawn Pettengill something he had heard.
Rep. Pettengill shared the conversation with her Facebook followers this week.
Our State Treasurer said he heard a rumor about me today and I said, "Oh yeah, what?" He said, I heard you weren't running again. I said, "Reeaally. Where did you hear that?" He couldn't remember.
Well kids, for the first time since I've been IN the job, I did consider not running again because my family (Mom, sister and her family, both of my sons and their families) lives down south. But ...
1. I love Mount Auburn.
2. I love my constituents.
3. I'm really good at the job.
4. I love the work and the challenges of the job.
5. I was miserable thinking of leaving my home and job. Seriously depressed miserable and I had done all the pressuring to myself!
6. My life is here.
7. My family all have their own lives. It's okay to visit, but after a couple of weeks, they are ready for me to leave. I'm just going to visit more and they will be happy after awhile that I pack to come home.
So, if you hear that rumor, please put it to rest. I am going to run again and work like crazy to continue to do my job and to keep it.
