Grassley plans meetings with southeast area Iowans


Daily Iowegian

WASHINGTON — Sen. Chuck Grassley has planned meetings with Iowans in 16 counties during the Senate’s upcoming February recess week.

“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.”

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 Feb. 18.
