DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Former Iowa Rep. Leonard Boswell has been elected chairman of the seven-member Iowa Transportation Commission.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1ENQuRn ) that Boswell was elected to the post last week. The commission is the policymaking arm of the Iowa Department of Transportation.

The 81-year-old Boswell owns a farm near Davis City along the Iowa-Missouri border and is a former member of the Iowa Senate who has remained active in state government since he was defeated for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012.

Boswell is a Vietnam veteran and a decorated U.S. Army helicopter pilot who now co-chairs Gov. Terry Branstad’s Home Base Iowa program to recruit military veterans to work and live in Iowa.
