Each year Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds and Iowa Lieutenant Governor Adam Gregg focus on traveling to each of Iowa’s 99 counties. On the afternoon of October 6, Lieutenant Governor Gregg made his way into Corydon for a visit at Shivvers Manufacturing and Country Clipper.
“Sometimes those county visits take different forms for example a school visit, a townhall meeting or the last time I was in Corydon I visited the Wayne Theatre and a few other places as well,” stated Gregg. “Today I had an opportunity to learn a little bit about a local business that has a national and international impact.”
“It’s really interesting to understand the type of design and innovation that is happening right here in town,” Gregg continued. “It’s a very impressive family business that employs a lot of people here in the area and I just enjoyed the opportunity to learn a little bit more about a great asset that we have here in our state in this company.”
While visiting he spoke with Shivvers President Carl Shivvers along with Service Technician Scott Graham to get a better understanding of how their business has been impacted throughout the COVID pandemic as well as the derecho that hit in other areas of the state.
Gregg traveled into Corydon following visits to Lamoni and Mount Ayr earlier in the day and planned to visit Centerville and Bloomfield following his departure.
