PoliticalNews.me - Jan 14,2012 - Grassley meetings in Iowa to continue next week
WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley has meetings scheduled with Iowans in 16 counties next week.
Beginning on Monday, Grassley will be in Centerville, Albia, Chariton, Corydon, Garden Grove, Mt. Ayr, Creston, Osceola, Winterset, Greenfield, Panora, Grimes, Grand Junction, Boone, Ames, and Le Grand.
Already this month, he has traveled to 20 counties for dialogue with Iowans. Grassley has held at least one meeting in each of Iowa’s 99 counties every year since he was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1980.
“I look forward to these meetings to hear directly from Iowans and to have the dialogue that’s so important to the process of representative government. This process is a two-way street. I go to people to answer questions and listen to comments, and they come out and participate in the discussion,” Grassley said.
Grassley encourages Iowans to communicate with him on a regular basis. In turn, he plans regular, face-to-face meetings in Iowa and with Iowans in Washington, and he responds to every letter, email and phone call from Iowans. Grassley also communicates via Facebook, Twitter and at http://grassley.senate.gov.
Below is more information about this month’s meetings. The town meetings are open to the public. Local hosts should be contacted regarding other meetings. Grassley will be available for interviews with local reporters for 15 minutes after every meeting.
Earlier this month, Grassley held meetings in Riceville, Charles City, New Hampton, Waverly, Waterloo, Clarion, Dakota City, Algona, Forest City, Garner, Hampton, Mason City, Manly, Osage, Calmar, West Union, Independence, Manchester, Vinton, and Gladbrook.
