WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley will hold town meetings in 14 Iowa communities today through Thursday.  

   

Starting this afternoon, the meetings will take place in Carroll, Denison, HarlanOaklandRed OakAtlanticOnawaMissouri ValleyGlenwoodSidneyShenandoahBedford, Corning and Audubon  

   

“I look forward to these meetings to hear directly from Iowans and to have the kind of dialogue that’s needed for the process of representative government to work.  I like to say it’s a two-way street.  I need to go to people to answer questions and listen to comments, and they need to come out and participate in the discussion.  The meetings are open to the public.  Everyone’s invited.”  

   

Grassley has held a constituent meeting in every one of Iowa’s 99 counties every year since he was first elected to the U.S. Senate.  After the 14 town meetings this week, he will have held a constituent meeting in every Iowa county this year.  

   

In addition to regular meetings in Iowa, and Grassley participates in many meetings beyond one in every county, every year, the Iowa senator responds to every constituent letter, email and phone call.  Grassley also communicates with Iowans on Facebook, Twitter and athttp://grassley.senate.gov.  He is a regular guest on public affairs programs statewide where he responds to questions from Iowans on any subject.  

   

Separately this month, Grassley participated in a wind-farm groundbreaking ceremony in Iowa Falls, attended the Iowa State Fair, and spoke to the National Foundation for Women Legislators.  He also participated in a General Aviation Manufacturers Association event at the Rockwell Collins’ hangar at the Eastern Iowa Airport in Cedar Rapids and spoke at Rotary Club meetings in Bettendorf and Ames.  The U.S. Senate is scheduled to reconvene on Tuesday, September 6.
