DES MOINES – Governor Chet Culver has issued the following statement congratulating John Norris on being named Chief of Staff to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack.  Norris currently serves as chair of the Iowa Utilities Board, which he has been a member of since 2005.

“Secretary Vilsack made a great choice in selecting John Norris as his chief of staff at USDA, and I congratulate John on his new role in the Obama Administration. John has been a great public servant throughout his adult life, and I am especially grateful for his service to our state most recently as chair of the Iowa Utilities Board. Both John and Jackie will be missed here in Iowa, but I know they will both continue to do great things for our state and nation in their new positions in Washington, DC. The First Lady and I wish them and their family all the best.”
