Council Bluffs finance director to run for Iowa Senate

Art Hill


Council Bluffs Finance Director Art Hill is planning to run for the Iowa Senate.

He’ll officially announce his candidacy for the Senate District 11 seat at a press conference Monday at the Council Bluffs Public Library.

Hill, a Republican, will be seeking the seat currently held by Republican Hubert Houser, who is undecided on whether to seek re-election. District 11 includes Pottawattamie, Cass, Adams and Union Counties.

The Senate seat is up for election in November 2014.

Hill has been the finance director for the city of Council Bluffs since 2008 and previously served as the business manager for the Lewis Central School District.

He was also the city’s main spokesperson during the Missouri River floods of 2011.

Hill will hold his press conference at 9:30 a.m. in Meeting Room D of the library.
