Denver woman to head Iowa Dept. on Aging

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- Governor-elect Terry Branstad has appointed an eastern Iowa woman to head up the state's Department on Aging.  Donna Harvey has served as the executive director of the Hawkeye Valley Area Agency on Aging in Waterloo for more than 20 years.  And now, she'll have a chance to carry her passion for serving the elderly to a statewide level.

"My goal is to make sure that we stay focused on what is most important to Iowa's elders, trying to keep politics out of it as best we can and make sure we don't lose that vision ever," Harvey said.

Harvey will begin her new role in a couple of weeks, right after Governor Branstad is inaugurated.  The Hawkeye Valley Area Agency on Aging will conduct a nationwide search for Harvey's replacement.
