WASHINGTON – March 28, 2011 - Senator Chuck Grassley met this month with Bettendorf resident Jeff Kling and his daughters Madison and Allison during their family trip to Washington, D.C.
The Kling family and Grassley discussed the ongoing federal budget debate, the most recent Senate vote for a continuing resolution to prevent a government shutdown, and the daily responsibilities of a U.S. senator.
“I’m glad that so many Iowa families, including the Kling’s, make arrangements for a meeting when they’re in Washington,” Grassley said. “This kind of dialogue, between elected representatives and the people we represent, is a big part of making the process of representative government work.”
Grassley makes it a priority to sit down with Iowans when they’re in Washington. In addition, in Iowa, he has had at least one constituent meeting in every one of Iowa’s 99 counties every year since he was first elected to the Senate in 1980. In addition to regular meetings, Grassley responds to every constituent letter, email and phone call. He communicates with Iowans on facebook, twitter and at http://grassley.senate.gov. He is a regular guest on public affairs programs statewide, where he responds to questions from Iowans.
