Culver’s inner circle

As noted in the blog post below, Governor-elect Chet Culver has announced his campaign manager will become his chief of staff in January.  Charles Krogmeier, Culver’s deputy Secretary of State and the man who has led his transition team alongside Bonnie Campbell, will become the director of the Department of Management. 

"I think it’s important to have people in these key positions that you have great confidence in," Culver just told Radio Iowa in a telephone interview.  "To have Patrick Dillon as my chief of staff, somone who has been there with me throughout this campaign shows that he is now very focused and willing to lead when it comes to governing." 

I asked about the fate of other department heads, specifically mentioning the interesting ones — Jeff Vonk (DNR) & Mike Blouin (DED). Culver said he would be making more announcements later "No other decisions have been made," Culver said.  "We are taking this one step at a time."
