Two long-time state managers confirmed to new posts

The Iowa Senate has unanimously confirmed two men to two jobs in the Culver Administration.  On a 47-0 vote, the Senate confirmed Charlie Krogmeier as director of the Iowa Department of Human Services.  The vote was a 180-degree swing from last year’s rejection of Gene Gessow to be D.H.S. director.  Gessow is now working in Arkansas.

On another 47-0 vote,the Iowa Senate also confirmed Bret Mills as the new director of the Iowa Department of Economic Development. Mills took over from interim director Fred Hubbell.  Hubbell was called in after the film office flap that became public in September. Former D.E.D. director Mike Tramontina resigned in mid-September.
