Iowa Values define J.D. Scholten. He’s played baseball in 7 countries, and his legal career has taken him to Minneapolis and Seattle. But who he has never changed: an Iowan, a community member, and a teammate with energy, a strong work ethic, and integrity. Between baseball seasons, J.D. began a career as a litigation paralegal, specializing in eDiscovery, Intellectual Property law and trials—a career that taught him the ins-and-outs of the law, good governance, and how to fight for people’s rights. Though a first-time candidate for office, J.D. is a lifelong Democrat who in October of 2002 took a 20 hour one-way bus ride to protest the Iraq war and has volunteered on local, state and national campaigns.
