Iowa elects new State Legislative Board Chairman

CLEVELAND, October 21 -- Members of the BLET’s Iowa State Legislative Board elected Jeff A. Kurtz as their new chairman at quadrennial meetings on October 13 and 14.

Chairman Kurtz is a member of BLET Division 391 (Fort Madison, Iowa).

“Jeff hit the ground on our Board with his feet running and has never stopped,” former chairman Chuck Hintz said. “He will make a most excellent chairman and members will enjoy his company and wisdom.”

Brother Hintz did not seek re-election for personal reasons.

“It was one of the toughest decisions I have made in my life, but I decided that my family must come first,” he said.

However, Brother Hintz, a member of Division 778 (Des Moines, Iowa), will continue to serve the Board as First Vice-Chairman.

BLET National President Don Hahs thanked Chuck Hintz for his dedication to the Brotherhood.

“I appreciate him continuing to help us,” President Hahs said. “We look forward to working with Brother Kurtz and the members of the Iowa State Legislative Board.

Also serving the Iowa State Legislative Board are: Secretary-Treasurer Janet L. Schultz, Division 6 (Boone, Iowa); Second Vice-Chairman Shaun Kelley, Division 642 (Creston, Iowa); and Third Vice-Chairman Steve Wendt, Division 656 (Mason City, Iowa).

During the quadrennial meetings, members discussed the upcoming Presidential election as well as a number of legislative and regulatory issues of importance to locomotive engineers and trainmen.
