City Council

Mary Gross – TERM EXPIRES 12-31-2021
I am a lifelong resident of the Holstein area but have lived in town for thirty-six years.  I currently work part-time as a sales clerk for Murray Jewelers.  I owned and operated Mary’s Café in Holstein for fifteen years.  I then served on City Council for four years and when my term was up; I was elected Mayor and served in that capacity from 1996-2015. When I was asked to fill an open seat on the Council, I decided to again serve my City.  I have always enjoyed government service.  My goals for the City are to keep a viable Main Street and to attract new businesses.  Affordable housing and rehab existing low income type housing if possible is a priority; and to keep nuisances in our community in check.   My husband Terry and I have one married son and four grandsons.

Rod Regennitter – TERM EXPIRES 12-31-2024
I have lived in Holstein my entire life. My wife, Holly and I have six children.   I currently work for the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship.  I ran for Council because I want to support the best needs for our taxpayers.  Infrastructure is a must and continuing improvements to roads and parks are goals for the community.  Job growth is always a high priority also.

Bonnie Stevenson – TERM EXPIRES 12-31-2024
I was born and raised in the Holstein area and moved back in 1998.  I am currently a Sales Administrator at VT Industries.  My husband Dave and I have six children and six grandchildren.  I ran for Council because I didn’t like the direction where the community was going.  I am a firm believer that if you don’t like something you need to do something to fix it.  My goals for the City are to keep Holstein safe and prosperous and to support the businesses that are in our community.
