WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley will be in Clinton, Des Moines, Henry, Iowa, Jackson, Lee, Louisa, Muscatine, Scott and Van Buren counties next week to hold town meetings, visit an Iowa workplace, speak with service club members, and answer questions from students.

These meetings are part of Grassley’s annual 99-county tour, which is one of the things he does to stay in touch with Iowans.  Grassley has held a constituent meeting in all of Iowa’s 99 counties every year since he was first elected to the United States Senate in 1980.

“These meetings give me a chance to talk with Iowans face-to-face.  I answer their questions and listen to what they think about the issues.  I work for the people of Iowa, so I want this feedback.  Constituent meetings are very important when it comes to taking common-sense views to Washington,” Grassley said.

Details of Grassley’s schedule are below.  Grassley will be available for media interviews for approximately 15 minutes following each event.  Grassley is a guest at these events.  Please contact the organizations for additional information.
