A long-time Republican state legislative leader is taking a new job in a familiar field. Senator Stewart Iverson of Clarion, who was replaced as Senate Co-Leader after an internal power struggle this spring, is going to become the Iowa chairman of a political action committee headed by New York’s governor called the 21st Century Freedom PAC.
Iverson calls it an opportunity that came about in recent weeks through which he’ll “continue to work with Republican candidates and get them elected in Iowa for the 2006 election. It’s going to be doing a lot of the same things that I’ve done in the past.”
Iverson praises Governor George Pataki who chairs the national PAC. Iverson applauds Pataki’s personal and professional policies, calling him an impressive leader and down-to-earth. Pataki will be in Iowa this weekend, appearing at the state G-O-P convention in Des Moines on Saturday.
Iverson was the Iowa legislature’s Senate Majority Leader for eight years and Co-Leader for the past two years. He left as the longest-serving Majority Leader in the state senate’s history. There’s more information at “www.freedompac.com”.
