Michael T. Klimesh of Spillville is one of 14 county chairs for the Walt Rogers Congressional campaign for the First Congressional District.

The only Republican state legislator currently serving from Black Hawk County, Rogers was first elected to the Iowa House of Representatives in 2010 by defeating an incumbent Democrat. Elected by his colleagues as an Assistant Majority Leader during his freshman term in office, Rogers was also chosen as one of only 15 state legislators nationwide to GOPAC's Emerging Leaders Class of 2012; this year Rogers was named one of four co-chairs of their Emerging Leaders Summit.

Rogers serves on the Appropriations, Economic Growth, Education, and Transportation committees and is the Vice Chair of the Administration and Rules Appropriations Committee.

Rogers represents Iowa House District 60, which is comprised of much of west Waterloo and southern Cedar Falls, Hudson, and southwestern rural Black Hawk County.

"I am excited to have such a great group of people from across the district on board with this campaign," said Rogers.

"Grassroots activists are a major key to building a campaign, and I believe these volunteers will be a great foundation for us to build on."
