Grassley plans meetings with Iowans in 21 counties during congressional recess
WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley last week said that that he will be holding meetings in 21 counties from January 11 - 15. The visits are part of Grassley’s annual meetings in each of Iowa’s 99 counties. The Senate will not be in session for a scheduled congressional recess.
“I’ve met with Iowans in every county, every year I’ve represented Iowa in the United States Senate. It’s this exchange of ideas that gives me greater insight directly from Iowans,” Grassley said. “Holding a meeting in each of our 99 counties gives me the opportunity to have an open and honest dialogue with the people I serve in the U.S. Senate.”
Grassley’s meetings will take him to the counties of Benton, Cedar, Clinton, Davis, Des Moines, Henry, Iowa, Jackson, Jefferson, Johnson, Jones, Keokuk, Lee, Linn, Louisa, Muscatine, Poweshiek, Scott, Tama, Van Buren and Washington.
Grassley will hold town hall meetings in Anamosa, Belle Plaine, Bloomfield, Columbus Junction, De Witt, Fort Madison, Kalona, Maquoketa, Mount Pleasant, Muscatine, Sigourney, Traer and Williamsburg.
He will tour businesses and meet with employees at Greystone Logistics Manufacturing Facility in Bettendorf and GE Consumer & Industrial in West Burlington.
He will meet with students at North Cedar Middle School in Clarence.
In addition, he will speak with the Cedar Rapids Rotary in Cedar Rapids, the Grinnell Rotary in Grinnell, the Davenport Kiwanis and the Fairfield Rotary in Fairfield.
He will tour the Reach Out and Read site and speak with doctors and hospital staff at the Van Buren County Hospital in Keosauqua.
