Effective today, Lt. Governor Adam Gregg has been selected to again chair the Midwest Region on the National Lieutenant Governors Association’s (NLGA) Executive Committee, becoming one of four regional chairs of the association. He previously served on the NLGA Executive Committee from July 2018 to July 2019, and chair of the midwest region beginning July of 2019.

“I am honored to again serve as Midwest Chair and represent our state on the Executive Committee of the National Lieutenant Governors Association,” said Lt. Gov. Gregg. “Multi-state dialogue and cooperation is more important now than it ever has been.  In this role, I will continue to ensure Iowans’ voices are heard, while also sharing best practices and learning from my colleagues from across the country.”

“Lt. Gov. Gregg’s peers find the Lt. Governor to be an engaged leader who works across state and party lines to develop and share ideas from rural economic development, to criminal justice reform,” said NLGA Director Julia Brossart.   

The committee meets three times a year and is responsible for charting the course of issues to be pursued by the nation’s second-highest state officeholders. In addition to its specific duties, the committee will also address issues of mutual concern to all states and territories.

The NLGA is a professional association for the Lieutenant Governors in all 50 states and the U.S. territories. Gov. Kim Reynolds is a former chair of NLGA, serving from July 2015 to July 2016.

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.
