On December 14th, 2019, at the Muscatine County Democratic Party Achievement Dinner, Henry Marquard announced his run for Muscatine County Board of Supervisors District Four.
Marquard worked for twenty-eight years as Chief Legal Officer for Stanley Consultants. He also taught for fourteen years as a professor at Saint Ambrose University. After retiring this spring, Marquard opened his own consultancy. He also enjoys traveling and spending time with his two grandsons.
Outside of his work, Marquard participated on a number of commissions and volunteered for several organizations. For four years, Marquard served as Chairman of the Iowa Environmental Protection Commission. He also did a stint as a member of the Iowa Supreme Court Civil Justice Reform Taskforce. Locally, Marquard served as President of the Catholic Board of Education and served as a Scoutmaster for an area Boy Scout troupe.
Marquard feels his experiences will help him help the people of Muscatine County. As a member of the Iowa Environmental Protection Commission, Marquard helped create regulations for using slag. Marquard used what he learned as chairman to help community groups working to stop slag use on Muscatine County roads and would continue these efforts as a county supervisor.
Additionally, Marquard’s time volunteering with the community has helped him see the value of many Muscatine County landmarks. As supervisor, he would use attractions such as the Old Barn and Muscatine County Fairgrounds to help promote tourism and promote economic growth. Marquard would also support working with the City of Muscatine to bring a port on the Mississippi River to Muscatine County.
Finally, Marquard considers maintaining mental health services throughout the county an important job for the board of supervisors. He would work with other members to ensure county residents continue to get the services they need.
