WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley recently met with Elaine and Bob Bartel, of Eldridge, during their visit to Washington, D.C.  The Bartels were in Washington to visit their daughter, Christine Bartel, who formerly worked for Grassley and now works in the State of Iowa’s Washington office.

Grassley and the visitors discussed the family’s missionary work in Africa and issues under consideration by Congress.

“I’m glad that I got to talk with the Bartels while they were in Washington,” Grassley said.  “This kind of dialogue, between elected representatives and the people we represent, is essential to 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 conducted 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.  He also responds to every constituent letter, email and phone call.  Grassley communicates with Iowans on facebook, twitter and at http://grassley.senate.gov, and he is a regular guest on public affairs programs statewide, where he responds to questions from Iowans.
