Yesterday, TEC Corp, Thompson Electric and Electric Innovations in Sioux City had a very special guest, Governor Terry Branstad of Iowa. The Governor stopped by to visit with CEO, Skip Perley and to also tour our office. While here, he also took time to meet some of the TEC Corp, Thompson Electric and Electric Innovations employees.
Trivial pursuit question – Who is Iowa’s and the United States longest serving Governor? Governor Branstad is Iowa’s longest serving Governor and will become the longest serving Governor in US history, in 2016. At the end of his sixth term as Governor, Governor Branstad will have served Iowa for over 24 years.
Whether you follow politics or not, it always exciting to meet a sitting Governor. It’s easy to become intimidated by their presence, but after you meet him, you realize he’s just like you and me.
