GOP: Meet the Members: Joe Mitchell

November 29, 2018

Joe Mitchell is seeking his first term in the Iowa House.

Joe grew up in Wayland and graduated from Waco High School.  He is currently a senior at Drake University in Des Moines and will graduate with his Bachelor’s Degree in Business.  While going to school, Joe has worked at the Capitol for the last four legislative sessions. This past session he interned with a multi-client lobbying firm where he helped represent a variety of clients on issues involving healthcare, taxes, education funding, and regulations.

Joe’s parents, John and Jean started a small manufacturing business in Wayland, MD Orthopedics.  The business has been in operation for more than 15 years and employs nearly 30 full-time employees.  After graduating from Drake, Joe plans to move home to southeast Iowa and help his father run the family business.

Joe is an avid trap shooter, fisherman, and golfer.  He enjoys serving on mission trips where he helps those who are less fortunate.  At home in southeast Iowa, he attends Harmony Bible Church.

In the House, Joe will work to ensure the state has a balanced budget and ensure taxpayers are protected from wasteful government spending.  He will also work to improve mental health accessibility and ensure Medicaid remains sustainable into the future.
