WASHINGTON – Sen. Chuck Grassley will hold a town meeting in Allamakee County on Thursday, August 4, as part of his annual 99 county meetings.

With these meetings, Grassley will continue his long-standing practice of holding meetings with Iowans in every one of Iowa’s 99 counties every year. Grassley has held a meeting in every county, every year since he was first elected to serve in the U.S. Senate. His question-and-answer sessions are open topic and cover whatever subjects those attending choose to raise.

“Representative government is a two-way street. I’m one half of the process and the people of Iowa are the other half. You can’t have representative government without dialogue between elected officials and the people we represent,” Grassley said. “I appreciate the opportunity to answer questions and take comments from Iowans.”

Grassley will be available for 15 minutes after the meeting to answer questions from local reporters. The meeting is open to the public and media.

Grassley’s town meeting schedule for Thursday, August 4, is as follows:
