Rettig, a Democrat from Iowa City, has been a county supervisor since October 2009, when she was appointed to fill an open seat. She won a special election in early 2010 and later that year was elected to a full four-year term.

Supervisor Terrence Neuzil, a Democrat from Iowa City, was elected vice chairman.
