Marshalltown Times-Republican: Iowa Veterans Home Commandant Matthew Peterson has submitted his resignation after just over 13 months on the job to pursue an opportunity that does not require separation from his family in Texas, where they are currently residing. Nursing Home Administrator Penny Cutler-Bermudez will continue to oversee the day-to-day operations at the home in Marshalltown, and Adam Steen, the director of the Iowa Department of Administrative Services, will serve as interim director at the state Department of Veterans Affairs. Peterson had been serving as the IDVA director since May, and the plan at the time was to consolidate the two agencies under his leadership.
