The Iowa Republican: Who will fill Boeyink's role at RPI?
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
With Jeff Boeyink's departure as the Executive Director of the
Republican Party of Iowa, RPI Chairman Matt Strawn now has a difficult
task in finding a replacement with just a little over a year to until
Election Day. To date, the hiring of Boeyink has been one of Strawn's
best accomplishments. Having run the day-to-day operations of Iowans
for Tax Relief before joining RPI, Boeyink brought extensive knowledge
about how a political institution should run. While working for a
state political party is often thankless work, Strawn and Boeyink were
able to make a number of significant organizational changes in the
seven months they worked side-by-side. Their biggest accomplishment
was breaking ties with a third party vendor who handled all of the
state party's accounting services. Bringing the accounting
responsibilities in-house was long overdue.
