Gov. Kim Reynolds and Lt. Gov. Adam Gregg issued statements Friday morning on the passing of State Representative Curt Hanson:

“I was saddened to hear the news of Rep. Curt Hanson’s passing this morning,” Gov. Reynolds said. “Rep. Hanson was a champion of education. As a former teacher, he wanted to ensure everyone in Iowa had the same access to quality, affordable education. Rep. Hanson’s presence in the Iowa House will greatly missed. I am keeping his wife, Diane, his children and his grandchildren in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”

“Around the State Capitol, Rep. Curt Hanson had a reputation for being kind,” Lt. Gov. Gregg said. “In a political climate where kindness often tends to be the exception, not the rule, Rep. Hanson’s thoughtful nature did not go unnoticed. He will be greatly missed, not only by his fellow lawmakers, but also by his family. Please join me in keeping the Hanson family in your thoughts and prayers as they mourn the passing of their husband, father and grandfather.”
