Bleeding Heartland: Norris to leave Iowa Utilities Board, work for Vilsack again

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

John Norris will become Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack's chief
of staff at the US Department of Agriculture, Iowa Independent
reported today. Norris was Vilsack's chief of staff early in his first
term as governor. In November, Norris's wife, Jackie Norris, accepted
an offer to become chief of staff for First Lady Michelle Obama.
Before Barack Obama announced his plan to nominate Vilsack to run the
USDA, John Norris indicated that he was interested in being appointed
to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Norris's departure means
that Governor Chet Culver will need to make two appointments to the
three-member Iowa Utilities Board this spring. Norris currently chairs
the IUB.
