Linn County 2024 Election Information

House District 80

Democratic Candidate

Aime J. Wichtendahl


Since 2016, I’ve had the distinct privilege to serve as a member of the Hiawatha City Council. I am the first openly trans woman elected to government in the state of Iowa. I am a writer, member of Musicians Local 137, and work in the technology sector.

During my time on the Council, I have focused on the needs of our city. Growing new housing and business developments while increasing public amenities such as the Library Expansion, new fire station, and village center. We did this while lowering the property tax levy without compromising essential government services.

Election Focus

I am running because I want a stronger Iowa, with broader prosperity and a better future – an Iowa with an effective government that recognizes a shared responsibility for building a brighter future for all of us.

Additional information can be found through editorials I have written through the CR Gazette and Des Moines Register.

Legislative Goals

  • Repeal the anti-AEA bill. Repeal School Vouchers.
  • Increase the minimum wage.
  • Improve mental health care.
  • Restore fundamental freedoms that the legislature has taken such as the right to bodily autonomy.
