Event Description:
Join us for our September YP Monthly Luncheon featuring Representative Shannon Lundgren on Sept. 15th from 11:45 am-1 pm at Holiday Inn Dubuque in the Blue Moon Room (lower level).
 
Shannon will be sharing her story of how being a business owner inspired her to enter the political ring, lessons learned, and how process works at the Capitol for ideas to become law.

Shannon grew up in Dubuque and was raised with three younger sisters, by her parents Lynne & Rich Fluhr. She graduated from Wahlert Catholic High School and then attended Midwest Travel Institute in Davenport graduating with a certificate in Tourism Management. Shannon and her husband Charlie live in Peosta and they have two grown daughters. Shannon is also a certified Travel Agent and owns and operates Lone Palm Travel Co. 

Shannon was first elected to the Iowa House in 2016 and is serving in her second term. As a member of the Iowa House, she has a proven track record of standing up for her constituents in District 57, and her voting record shows that she has their best interest at heart. 

Shannon managed several complex bills early in her tenure including; the Ban on Abortions after 20-weeks, the Fetal Heartbeat bill, both an Adult and Children's Brain (Mental) Health bills and addressed the states opioid epidemic with legislation that has had an immediate impact on those suffering with opioid addiction.  Her work on complex bills along with her leadership skills has earned her the Chair seat for the House Human Resource Committee, a committee that works on health policy issues for the state.  She continues to work on lowering the cost of prescription drugs, transparency in the states Department of Human Services and the Department of Public Health, and works tirelessly on affordable access to healthcare for Iowans. 

Shannon also serves on the Commerce Committee, State Government Committee, as well as the Health & Human Services Joint Budget Sub-Committee, advocating for access to care and fair reimbursement for providers.  

Shannon is a known truth-teller, always direct, yet very diplomatic.  If asked she will tell you that she did not get elected to make friends in Des Moines, that she was elected to serve the interests of her constituents, family, friends, and neighbors in Dubuque County.  She continues to put District 57 and first.

Young Professionals of Dubuque (YPD) luncheons feature a presentation on professional, personal, or community development.
