IOWA CITY, Iowa (December 21, 2017) — Dale Todd of Cedar Rapids has joined the board of directors of the nonpartisan Iowa Policy Project.
Todd, who last month was elected to the Cedar Rapids City Council, is regional director of development for the Hatch Development Group. He previously served the city of Cedar Rapids as Commissioner of Parks from 1998-2002.
Todd, who has a son with a rare form of epilepsy, serves on numerous state and national epilepsy-related boards and organizations and is a past chair of the Iowa Commission on Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities.
The IPP Board elected Todd at its meeting Monday in Grinnell.
“We are excited to have someone of Dale's knowledge, energy and stature join our board team at IPP,” said Janet Carl of Grinnell, president of the IPP board.
“Dale brings expertise in community affairs and business, and interest in the many areas where IPP provides public policy research and analysis to the public, advocates and policy makers across our state.”
IPP, a nonprofit organization based in Iowa City, was founded in 2001 to research issues in budget and tax policy, energy and the environment, and economic opportunity issues such as wages, jobs and work support/safety net programs affecting Iowa families.
Besides Carl and Todd, the IPP board includes Lana Shope of Indianola, Lyle Krewson of West Des Moines, Ken Sagar of Des Moines, Sue Ravenscroft of Ames, Shannon Cofield of Ankeny, Paul McAndrew of Coralville, and Kamyar Enshayan of Cedar Falls.
