Holly Brink of rural Mahaska County announced that she will be seeking election to the Iowa House of Representatives in District 80, which includes the eastern half of Mahaska County, the northwest corner of Wapello County and all of Monroe and Appanoose counties.

Brink grew up on a farm in Keokuk County and is a graduate of Oskaloosa High School. She attended William Penn University, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education with endorsements in American History, Psychology and Coaching. Brink and her husband, Adam, live on their family farm north of Oskaloosa.

Brink currently works as a District Sales Coordinator for American Family Life Assurance of Columbus (Aflac) along with working on the family farm and her husband and three children, Garisin, Baylen, and Harbor. She and her family attend the First Christian Reform Church in Oskaloosa.

For the past 10 years, Brink’s career with Aflac has focused on working with businesses in Southern Iowa to help provide strategies and solutions for the changing workforce markets. She also works closely with individuals to help them understand their insurance options.

“I have firsthand knowledge of farming and the concerns faced in today’s agricultural industry. And, as a mother of three school aged children, I am very aware of the challenges our students, parents, teachers and administrators are facing. I will strive to improve our business climate, work to ensure our ag economy and family farms stabilize and fight for our children’s education and future.”

Brink has been actively involved in the community as a member of the Oskaloosa Chamber and Development Board, the Rotary, and serves on a steering committee of the Oskaloosa Christian School’s largest fundraiser, as well as other organizations throughout the region. She was also instrumental in the development and finance of the Pre-K system in her community.

“I look forward to having the opportunity to represent the hardworking people of southern Iowa and I would like to ask for your support and vote in both June and November,” Brink said.
