Gov. Terry Branstad appoints temporary Chief of Staff replacement
Gov. Terry Branstad named Brenna Findley his interim chief of staff on Wednesday.
On Aug. 30, Jeff Boeyink resigned as Branstad’s chief of staff; Findley will serve in the position until a permanent replacement can be found.
Findley also serves as Branstad’s legal counsel and will continue to do so while taking on the second position.
“Brenna will provide continuity within our office as I search for a new chief of staff,” Branstad said in a press release. “I am pleased Brenna has agreed to serve in this important role and will rely on her leadership as we continue the work and operations of my administration.”
According to the release, it is not expected that a permanent replacement will be found before the governor leaves for a trade mission in India and Japan on Sep. 18.
