Branstad transition chief talks on IPTV

Dave Roederer (pronounced ROAD-er) is the man Governor-elect Terry Branstad chose to serve as chair of his transition team.  Roederer is also Branstad’s choice to serve as Department of Management director once Branstad is sworn in as governor on January 14, 2011.

Roederer is the guest on this weekend’s edition of “Iowa Press” on Iowa Public Television.  He answered questions about the transition, about budget drafting for next year, about the contract between the state and AFSCME, and about a variety of other issues, including a few details of the nauguration itself.  “For those of us who don’t dance, I’m sad to say, ‘Yes, there will be a ball.'” Roederer joked.

The Des Moines Register’s Kathie Obradovich tweeted during the taping.  Here’s the Radio Iowa story.  Jason Clayworth of The Des Moines Register wrote this.  Mike Glover of The Associated Press filed this.
