    Lang Named Regents President





    The state Board of Regents this afternoon approved Gov. Terry Branstad’s preferred candidate to serve as president of the board, which oversees Iowa’s public universities.
    Regent Craig Lang, a Brooklyn Republican, has replaced Regent David Miles, a Dallas Center Democrat, as board president.
    Lang, president of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, will finish the remainder of Miles’ term, which expires April 30.
    Branstad said Monday that he preferred Lang replace Miles as board president.
    The board also approved Bruce Rastetter, chief executive of Hawkeye Energy Holdings and a top Republican donor and fundraiser, to finish the remainder of the term vacated by president pro tem Jack Evans, a Cedar Rapids Republican.
    The regents, who met this afternoon via telephone, did not discuss the nominations before voting.
    The board office said Lang is traveling and will be unavailable comment until the regents’ next meeting on Aug. 4.
    Lang said, in a statement released by the board office, that the most urgent matter facing the regents is the selection and recruitment of the next president of Iowa State University.
    ISU President Gregory Geoffroy has said he will retire by July 2012. A presidential search committee has been formed, and met for the first time last month.
    “Iowa has an opportunity to be a key leader in the bioeconomy, especially given our strength in agriculture and our research institutions, and I believe Iowa State University can and should be on the forefront of that growing industry. ISU’s new leader must have a vision that leverages Iowa’s strengths, and one of those strengths is the bioeconomy,” Lang said in the statement.

    Of course, if Terry risks messing with ISU football in any way, he'll hear about it from the Stensruds the next time he goes home.

    Good choice. Knew a lot about Lang through his work with IAHSAA in terms of athletics through IFB. Listened to him speak a few times about education and he was very passionate as well. Should be a good choice for Iowa State.

    Not really liking the fact terry braindead pulls this kind of power trip. This is not a democrat republican thing. He just make me shake my head. I can't wait to go back to the 80's.
