Governor Terry Branstad’s chief of staff announced Wednesday he’s resigning to take a job in the private sector. Thirty-five-year-old Matt Hinch has been Branstad’s chief of staff the past two years.
His last day on the job will be August 7th. Hinch is Branstad’s second chief of staff since the governor returned to public office in 2011. A news release from the governor’s office did not provide details about Hinch’s next job. A spokesman for Branstad said the governor will name a new chief of staff in the near future.
