Iowa National Guard head to run Rebuild Iowa Office

Posted:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Gov. Chet Culver has named the former head of Iowa's rebuilding commission to lead the Rebuild Iowa Office.

Culver says Iowa National Guard Adjutant Gen. Ron Dardis will begin in the position on Monday.

Last year, Culver appointed Dardis as Chairman of the Rebuild Iowa Advisory Commission following summer flooding and tornadoes that ravaged the state.

Culver says Dardis will be charged with all operational, administrative, executive and legislative functions of the Rebuild Iowa Office.

The office coordinates all state recovery and rebuilding efforts.

Dardis announced last year he would be stepping down adjutant general of the Iowa National Guard.
