WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley will participate in 16 meetings in Iowa during the week of March 17 as part of his annual 99-county tour.

Grassley has visited each of Iowa’s 99 counties at least once every year for a meeting since he was first elected to the U.S. Senate.

 

On March 17, 19, 20 and 21, Grassley will be in Waukon, Monona, Oelwein, Calmar, Cresco, Tama, Marengo, Coralville, Oskaloosa, Sigourney, Kalona, Le Claire, Maquoketa, Manchester, Dyersville and Anamosa.  The meetings in Oelwein, Calmar and Cresco were originally to be held on Feb. 17 but were rescheduled due to weather.

“Representative government is a two-way street.  It’s strengthened by dialogue between elected officials and the people we represent,” Grassley said.  “I appreciate the opportunity to hold town meetings, go directly to Iowans in their workplaces, and answer questions and take comments where people are gathered for civic group meetings.  I also enjoy meeting with high school students as they study current affairs and government.”

Grassley will be available for 15 minutes before or after each meeting to answer questions from local reporters, except for the meeting in Monona.  Grassley’s town meetings in Cresco, Maquoketa and Anamosa are open to the public and media.  Members of the media should contact individual organizations about attending other events, as Grassley is a guest of the organizations.
