    Gov. Reynolds names Michael Boal as new Senior Legal Counsel

    Kim Reynoldshttps://governor.iowa.gov/about-the-governor
    As Iowa’s 43rd Governor, Kim Reynolds is determined to make sure that Iowa’s success is every Iowan’s success. Whether it’s preparing Iowans for cutting-edge careers, fighting for education, improving healthcare and mental health access, or empowering our rural communities, Kim’s priorities are making a difference in all four corners of the state. Her vision keeps Iowans at the center of all decisions, especially in the area of fiscal responsibility. Kim knows that when Iowa taxpayers are able to keep more of their money, great things happen. She also believes in redemption. Kim’s justice reform initiatives carefully balance second chances with victim rights. As Governor, Kim’s strong voice for international trade, agriculture, and advanced manufacturing is opening new markets and maintaining relationships with leaders in China, Mexico, Canada, Israel, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, Germany, Brazil and Argentina, to name just a few. Although she’s traveled the world telling Iowa’s story, Kim is still a small-town girl at heart with common-sense values. These principles are reflected in the Governor’s Empower Rural Iowa initiative and Future Ready Iowa. At age 57, Kim earned a bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University. Then, nearly two years later, on Nov. 4, 2018, she was elected by Iowans to become their first woman Governor. Family means everything to Kim and her husband, Kevin. They have three daughters (Jennifer, Nicole and Jessica) who are happily married, and Kim and Kevin love spending time with their 10 very active grandchildren.

    Today Governor Reynolds announced that Michael Boal has been promoted to Senior Legal Counsel in the Office of the Governor. Boal has served as the Governor’s Deputy Legal Counsel since November 2018, and replaces Sam Langholz, who is joining the Office of the Attorney General.   

    “Michael is an outstanding attorney with a strong work ethic and passion for public service,” said Gov. Reynolds. “His background in private practice, experience with Iowa’s Judicial Branch, and as deputy legal counsel in my office, has given him the depth of knowledge and hand-on experience necessary for this role. Michael is an incredible asset to my team, and I’m fully confident in his legal and leadership abilities.”

    Prior to joining the Office of the Governor, Boal was in private practice at a law firm in Des Moines. After graduating from the University of Nebraska College of Law, he clerked for district court judges in Iowa’s Fifth Judicial District and for Justice Edward Mansfield on the Iowa Supreme Court. Boal was born and raised in Ankeny, Iowa and currently lives in Urbandale with his wife and son.
