The Insiders: July 15th Edition, Remembering Governor Ray
IOWA -- Iowa has had a long list of longtime public servants, but there may be no politician in modern times more respected than five-term governor Robert Ray. Ray's portrait hangs in the Statehouse conference named in his honor. He was a Roosevelt High School and Drake University graduate, Army veteran, governor from 1969-1983, National Governor Association chairman, Drake president, acting Des Moines mayor, CEO, and undisputed leader of civility.
