Petition to Remove Richard W. Lozier, Jr., from the Iowa Utilities Board
We call on Governor Kim Reynolds and other members of the Executive Council of Iowa (Paul D. Pate, Secretary of State; Michael L. Fitzgerald, Treasurer of State; Bill Northey, Secretary of Agriculture; and Mary Mosiman, Auditor of State) to remove Richard W. Lozier, Jr. from the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) immediately, citing “gross partiality” as referenced in Chapter 66.26(3) of the Iowa Code. Mr. Lozier’s strong connections to Energy Transfer Partners as the attorney for the MAIN Coalition represent clear partiality, not only toward the Dakota Access pipeline but toward any similar proposals likely to come before the IUB in the future.
Petition Delivery on Friday, September 8 at 11:00 a.m.
Iowa State Capitol, 1007 E Grand Avenue, Des Moines
We’ll meet on the west steps of the Iowa State Capitol building for a brief press conference. Then we’ll visit the Governor’s office.

Demand Politicians, Not Taxpayers, Pay Lawsuit Settlement
We call on Iowa Senate Republicans to pay the $2.2 million tab to settle Kirsten Anderson’s sexual harassment lawsuit. On July 18, a Polk County jury rightfully ruled in Kirsten’s favor. But taxpayers shouldn’t pay for the sexually inappropriate and demeaning behavior of a handful of politicians and their staff. Demand that Senate Majority Leader Bill Dix (R-Shell Rock) and the Iowa Republican Party pay the settlement fee.
