Grassley in 16 Iowa counties next week

WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley will meet next week with Iowans in 16 counties.  Grassley will hold town meetings in 10 communities in addition to question-and-answer sessions with students at four high schools, employees at a manufacturing plant in central Iowa, and members of the Des Moines Rotary Club.

“I look forward to these meetings to listen to comments and respond to questions,” Grassley said.  “Representative government is a two-way street, and it’s strengthened by dialogue between elected officials and the people we represent.  Going to every county every year for face-to-face meetings is part of my effort to keep in touch with Iowans.”

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.

The Senate is not meeting in Washington during the week of President’s Day, observed on February 18.
