Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds recently announced that Adam Gregg, 2002 West Sioux graduate, will serve as the administration’s new legislative liaison. Gregg will begin his duties Dec. 10. Gregg replaces Todd Schulz, who served in the position two years prior to accepting a new opportunity in the private sector.
“Adam Gregg is a talented young professional, and his extensive knowledge of the legislative process will serve Iowa’s taxpayers well as we promote sound fiscal policies and economic development initiatives to benefit all Iowans,” said Gov. Branstad. “This position is important, because an individual needs to work well with both parties, and Adam will be a good consensus builder. I have always sought the most talented person for each position, and Adam will be a great addition to our team.”
Gregg graduated in 2009 with high honors from Drake University Law School, where he received the institution’s most prestigious honor, the Opperman Scholarship. While there, he earned the faculty’s William and Ellen Cooney Hoye Award, given to the student who demonstrates the greatest promise as an advocate, public servant and practitioner.
While in school, Gregg conducted legal research in his capacity as an Iowa Supreme Court scholar with Justice Mark Cady, was a staff member for the Drake Law Review, and presided over both the Drake Law Federalist Society and Drake Law Republicans.
Gregg earned his B.A. from Central College in 2006, graduating first in his class as Summa Cum Laude in Political Science and History.
Gregg’s experience includes internships with the U.S. Dept. of Defense, U.S. Congress and United Kingdom Parliament. Most recently he served in the private sector as an attorney and multi-client lobbyist.
“Adam Gregg is a true talent, and his experience will be invaluable as we promote our educational and economic initiatives at the Statehouse,” said Lt. Gov.Reynolds.
Branstad and Reynolds thanked Schulz for his work on behalf of the administration, and they wish him well in his new position working in government affairs for an energy transmission company.
Gregg is the son of Carol and Larry Gregg of Hawarden
