Jim Bingman, the son of Willis and Cleta Bingman, is a lifelong Madrid resident, born December 5, 1946. Jim's parents owned and operated the Madrid Locker, located on the northeast corner of State and Third Streets, throughout his childhood years. On March 20, 1971, he married Rhonda Reynolds, of rural Madrid, the daughter of Fred and Dee Reynolds, who farm northeast of Madrid. Born December 12, 1951, Rhonda moved with her family to Madrid from Ankeny when she was in the eighth grade.

Jim and Rhonda have two children: Cher, born September 30, 1972, and Ryan, born February 20, 1977. Both children attend the Madrid schools. Their activities include soccer and piano. The family belongs to the Ankeny Church of the Brethren. Jim is a past president of the Madrid Lions. Rhonda's hobbies, which have sometimes been combined with home business enterprises, include gourmet cooking (primarily oriental cookery), candy making, and cake decorating. They enjoy travel and sporting events, both as participants and as spectators, and often attend games and meets in Iowa and out-of-state.

Jim works at Oscar Mayer, in Perry, and is a substitute rural mail carrier in Madrid. Rhonda works for the Lincoln Liberty Life Insurance Company in West Des Moines. They own and operate the Service Master franchise in Madrid, which specializes in all types of cleaning.
