Grassley begins meetings with Iowans in 21 counties

WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley is holding town meetings with Iowans this week in Columbus Junction, Donnellson, Burlington, Agency, Bloomfield, Keosauqua, Mount Pleasant, and Lockridge, and he his speaking with service clubs in Burlington, Bloomfield, Mount Pleasant and Cedar Rapids.

Grassley said he had plans to attend the Iowa State Fair before holding additional town meetings  in Atlantic, Villisca, Bedford, Clarinda, Percival, Glenwood, Logan, Harlan, Audubon, and Carroll, speaking with a service club in Corning, and touring a business in Council Bluffs during the week of August 20.

“I look forward to these events and meetings to listen to comments and respond to questions.  My town meetings are open to the public, and everyone is welcome.  I also appreciate the opportunity to go to service clubs and workplaces for Q and A with Iowans who may not be able to attend a town meeting,” Grassley said.  “Representative government is a two-way street and strengthened by dialogue between elected officials and the people we represent.”

Grassley has held at least one meeting with Iowans in every one of the state’s 99 counties since 1980, when he was first elected to serve in the U.S. Senate.
