WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley will hold constituent meetings in 15 Iowa communities next week.

With these meetings, Grassley will have been to every one of the state’s 99 counties this year for meetings with Iowans.  Grassley has held a meeting in every county, every year since 1980, when he was first elected to serve in the U.S. Senate.

On August 26, 27, and 28, Grassley will hold town meetings in Ida Grove, Onawa, Denison, Carroll, Sac City, Spencer, Primghar, Cherokee, Le Mars, Rock Rapids, and Spirit Lake.  He also will speak at a downtown Sioux City Rotary Club meeting and in at a roundtable with Hy-Vee store directors in Sioux City. Grassley will visit high schools in Sibley and Storm Lake for Q&A with students.  In Sioux Center, he will tour the plant and hold a Q&A session with employees of Link Manufacturing, Ltd.

“Representative government is a two-way street.  It’s strengthened by dialogue between elected officials and the people we represent,” Grassley said.  “I like to hold a combination of town meetings, where everyone is invited to attend and ask questions on any subject, and meetings where I go to people in their workplaces and at community events to talk with Iowans who may not go to a town meeting.  I also really enjoy meeting with high school students as they study how our system of government works and gain an understanding of current events and government.”

More information about Grassley’s meeting schedule is below. The 11 town meetings are open to the public.  Questions about other events should be directed to the host.

In addition to these meetings, Grassley is spending most of the August recess of the U.S. Senate in Iowa. He is participating in numerous public affairs programs with Iowa broadcasters and holding business meetings with Iowa community leaders. He spoke at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames and spent a day at the Iowa State Fair. Grassley is also visiting the Harry S. Truman Library & Museum in Missouri and the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum in Kansas.
