DES MOINES – Governor Chet Culver issued the following statement today:

“I want to wish every Iowan a peaceful and joyous holiday season and best wishes for the new year to come. 

“As Iowans, we close out the first decade of the 21st Century on a positive note, with a growing economy, a fiscally sound government and a healthy recovery from historic natural disasters.   May our state enjoy continued success and prosperity in 2011 and beyond.
“I also wish to acknowledge and honor the families who are apart this holiday season because a family member is deployed in the armed forces, including more than 3,100 Iowa soldiers who are overseas as part of the largest deployment in more than 65 years.  The prayers of all Iowans are for your safe return.    

“For me, this holiday season is one filled with tremendous gratitude.  It has been my great honor and privilege to serve the people of this state. On behalf of the First Lady, the Lt. Governor, and the entire Culver and Judge families, we wish a happy holidays to one and all.”
