Rob Hach of Alta, Iowa is one of eight people named citizen co-chairs of Monday's inauguration by President Obama
ALTA, Iowa (KTIV) -
An Alta, Iowa man will play a prominent role in next week's presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C. President Barack Obama has named Rob Hach as one of eight "citizen co-chairs" of the inaugural events.
Ten years ago, Hach started the small renewable energy business "Anemometry Specialists" in Alta. The company assesses land to determine whether its feasible for a wind farm.
Like President Obama, Hach supports the extension of a wind energy production tax credit. And even though he is a Republican, Hach is also a big supporter of Obama. In fact, he introduced the president at Obama's campaign rally at Morningside College last September.
Hach and the other citizen co-chairs appointed by the president will take part in the National Day of Service on Saturday that kicks off the inaugural events. They will also ride on a float in Monday's inaugural parade and attend the official inaugural balls that night.
