Bleeding Heartland: Culver appoints Elderkin to Power Fund, La Seur to Environmental Protection Commission

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

I love it! Governor Chet Culver announced four appointments today:
Shearon Elderkin for the Iowa Power Fund board; Carrie La Seur for the
Environmental Protection Commission; John Mathes as the Interim
Commandant of the Iowa Veterans Home; and Tomas Rodriguez as Iowa's
State Public Defender. ... Earlier this month Iowa Senate Republicans
blocked Elderkin's appointment to the EPC and La Seur's appointment to
the Power Fund board, despite both women's strong qualifications. I
appreciate the governor's commitment to giving these women the chance
to continue their volunteer public service. Republicans also rejected
Gene Gessow, Culver's nominee to head the state Department of Health
and Human Services. It will be interesting to see where Gessow lands.
