Decorah native Rob Sand has been sworn into office as the State Auditor for Iowa. Sand took the oath of office at a ceremony Wednesday at the State Capitol, surrounded by friends and family members.
Following the statehouse ceremony, the 36-year-old Sand announced he's selected a politically diverse leadership team of one Democrat and two Republicans.
"The only thing I want to emphasize today is the three people that I'm going to give the most decision-making responsibility in this office politically represent everyone in the state — Democrat, independent and Republican," Sand said.
