As The Iowa Republican reported Monday, Ed Failor, Junior, has resigned his post as president of Iowans for Tax Relief. Here’s The Des Moines Register story from Jennifer Jacobs; one written by Cedar Rapids Gazette reporter James Q. Lynch includes quotes from a Failor interview.
Failor sent these comments in an email yesterday:
…You may be asking “why?”.
Well, after 16 great years, I resigned as President of ITR on Friday.
ITR has great leadership, staff, and history. They are in very capable hands and will continue to be a powerhouse in Iowa policy and politics.
I am moving on to pursue exciting opportunities. I will let you all know specifically what’s next at an appropriate time.
The Muscatine-based group has been influential in Iowa politics for decades. It was founded in 1978 by David Stanley of Muscatine, a state representative in the 1960s and ’70s who ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate twice. His grandfather had been a state senator, too.
