Davenport, Iowa - Scott County Auditor Roxanna Moritz announced today that her office will sponsor a special training opportunity for the Clerks and Trustees of Scott County’s thirteen (13) political townships. The special training will occur on:

Monday, January 12, 2015 - 9:30 a.m.

Board Room, first floor

Scott County Administrative Center

600 West 4th Street

Davenport, Iowa


The training will be conducted by Alan Vandehaar of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Also available to answer questions will be Scott County Auditor Roxanna Moritz, Wes Rostenbach, Accounting and Tax Manager and Richard Bauer, Elections Supervisor from the Auditor’s Office. Members of the Scott County Board of Supervisors have also been invited. In addition to the training clerks and trustees will receive a special reference manual prepared by ISU Extension and Outreach for use by township officials.

This training opportunity is the first of its kind to be offered in Scott County. “My office deals directly with township officials on a regular basis for processing their budgets, payment for maintenance of veterans’ graves, elections and other matters, so it was a natural fit for the Auditor’s Office to sponsor this event,” said Moritz. “My staff fields a lot of questions from township clerks and trustees, so we hope that this program will help answer some of those questions and aid township officials in carrying out their duties,” said Moritz.

Pledges to continue fight to grow the economy, expand the middle class and make education available to everyone

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement after he was sworn in at the beginning of the 114th Congress. Loebsack, who began serving in 2007, is beginning his fifth term serving the people of Iowa’s Second Congressional District.

“As the new Congress is sworn in, I am honored to be given the opportunity to continue my work on growing the economy, fighting to expand the middle class and ensuring everyone has access to the education they need to succeed in the 21st century workforce. In the nearly 500 events I held around Iowa last year, the one thing that remained constant was the desire of the people for Congress to put aside its political bickering and come together to move our nation forward. The beginning of this new Congress provides us an opportunity to do just that. I look forward to continuing to serve the people of Iowa.”

As the new congress convenes, Loebsack will now serve on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. He will continue to have two district offices, in Davenport and Iowa City, and will remain in the same office in Washington.
