Team ISEA Receives a Surprise Visit from Governor-Elect Culver

The ISEA Executive Board had a pleasant surprise on Saturday morning, December 2nd when Governor-elect Chet Culver walked in! Team ISEA Lobbyist Brad Hudson had made arrangements with the Culver Transition Team to have Governor-elect Culver stop by at some point of our weekend meeting. Governor-elect Culver (pictured at right) personally greeted every board member, thanking them for their efforts in helping elect him as Iowa's next Governor.

Following the brief thanks to the Executive Board and ISEA Managers, Governor-elect Culver autograped a children's book (D is for Democracy, A Citizen's Alphabet, by Elissa Grodin) that we will auction off at ISEA's Legislative Conference on January 5-6, 2007 at the Quailty Inn to begin raising funds for Campaign 2008 and replenish our ISEA-PAC funds.

One last photo before taking off, Governor-elect Culver poses for a photo with me. When Governor-elect Culver is sworn into office on January 12, 2007, he will be the only Governor in the nation to have been a classroom teacher within the last 20 years.
