Lowell Engle of Harpers Ferry has announced he will be seeking election to the Iowa House of Representatives in District 56, which encompasses Allamakee County and most of Clayton County.
Engle was born in Hampton and graduated from Tripoli High School. After graduation he spent one year at the Iowa State Teacher's College, joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and enrolled at George Washington University. After his time in the FBI, he moved back to Iowa and completed more schooling at the University of Iowa.

In 1991, Engle retired and moved to Harpers Ferry, where he built his home. Shortly after moving home, he contracted with the government to perform Central Intelligence work for 20 years.
Engle's life has been dedicated to service and now he is looking to work on behalf of Iowans in the Statehouse. "I will work to make government more efficient and effective, create a stronger Iowa economy, and promote opportunity for future generations to prosper in Iowa," he said. "I will go to Des Moines and represent our rural communities and support our main street businesses."
Engle is a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the American Legion. He has four children, two grandchildren, and one great-grandson. He's a member of St. Patrick Catholic Church in Waukon, where he sings in the choir.
