Congressman Steve King was in Fort Dodge meeting with officials concerning the widening of Highway 20 and the expansion of airport facilities. King talked at great length with the business leaders about the economic impact of these projects on the community and learned of how the community would like the assistance of the federal government in moving the projects forward.
King released the following statement after meeting with business and community leaders from Fort Dodge and Webster County in his Washington, DC office:
“It is always a pleasure meeting with the Fort Dodge and Webster County leaders,” said King. “I was glad to discuss issues of importance to them including four lane Highway 20, the airport, and other new developments. I can confidently say they are leading the Fort Dodge area in the right direction with new economic development opportunities that are coming to fruition after years of tireless work and investment from the community. I am pleased to help in any way I can to ensure continued progress and success. Fort Dodge has excellent business and community leaders who I consider dear friends and I look forward to working with them in the years to come.”
King said he would take these issues back with him to Washington.
