(DES MOINES) – Gov. Terry Branstad today issued the following statement upon learning of the passing of former Des Moines Mayor Richard “Dick” Olson:

“Dick Olson was a fine mayor for the City of Des Moines. Dick’s accomplishments, including the Des Moines Botanical Center and the skywalk system, are still prevalent in Iowa’s capital city. He was a very dedicated public servant who served as both a Des Moines City Councilman and two-term Mayor. He will be greatly missed.”
