Radio Iowa: New Iowa Fed head

Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa

The Iowa Federation of Labor has a new leader. It's Ken Sagar
(pronounced SAY-ger). We chatted by phone for a few minutes this
morning and I wrote a story. At the conclusion of the interview, I
asked this question: "I don't think I've ever interviewed a union
leader who's quite so soft-spoken." Sagar said this in reply: "Many
years ago when I was at my local union I realized that I can't yell
louder than 300 people in a room. I found that if I talked quietly,
everybody has to be quiet or they can't hear the details of the
contract and so calm and cool and collected, so to speak, has served
me fairly well. It does help in some of those tense situations if
there is somebody who is just a little softer-spoken."
