Grassley Completes Annual 99 County Meetings for 2015
WASHINGTON— Sen. Chuck Grassley today completed his 35th annual 99 county meetings with a question and answer session (Q&A) with the senior class at Greene County High School in Jefferson.
“Representative government is a two-way street. I’m one half of the process and Iowans are the other half. Open communication between those of us elected and the people we represent is essential to representative government. That’s why I hold these meetings every year and encourage Iowans to keep in touch with me. When I hold meetings in Iowa, I like to do a mix of open town meetings along with Q&As with businesses, schools, and service clubs. That way, I can also talk with people who might not otherwise be able to attend a town meeting,” Grassley said.
Grassley has held a meeting in each of Iowa’s 99 counties every year since he was elected to the U.S. Senate. He kicked off this year’s meetings in Butler County with a town meeting in Allison on January 3, 2015.
Topics covered in the meetings included everything from the avian flu to ISIS, Social Security to ethanol, and health care to agriculture policy and federal regulations.
Iowans can see if Grassley will be in their area by checking the Grassley events calendar on his website.
