WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) — Former state Rep. Walt Rogers is running to fill the vacant District 30 seat.
I’m excited to enter the race for Iowa Senate District 30. I want Black Hawk County and the University of Northern Iowa to have a stronger voice in Des Moines. I will be a strong advocate for them in the majority party!

That seat is now empty, after Jeff Danielson stepped down due to ongoing controversy within the Cedar Falls Fire Department.
Rogers ran against Danielson in 2008, but lost. Rogers went on to win a seat in the Iowa House in 2011. He lost that seat in November to Dave Williams.
A special election date is scheduled for March 19th.
