Iowa Liberty Network Authentic Conservative Spotlight

Doug Campbell is a 5th-generation Iowan. Growing up, he had a family business, Campbell Heating Company which became Campbell Industries, Inc. in 1964. The family business manufactured commercial heating and cooling systems for many applications, but predominantly for elevator grain dryers, which later branched into seed drying for Funk, Dekalb, and Pioneer seed corn dryers.

Doug’s interest was not inclined to the family business of drying and storing grain. So, in 1975 he attended Drake University College of Pharmacy, graduating midterm in December 1978. Upon graduation and licensure, he accepted his first job in Mason City, Iowa. Doug married his wife, a southern belle, (Karen) in 1983 and brought her back to Iowa. They have two adult children, Grant and Elizabeth.

Doug retired from practicing pharmacy in 2014 but still retains an active license as a Registered Pharmacist. Doug founded a company that develops Intellectual Property associated with developing and formulating nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals.

Doug’s faith instructs him to love God and his fellow man, and he believes this is his primary motivation for serving my fellow man by seeking office in our state government.
