WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley this morning began a series of meetings with Iowans in 30 communities, as the Senate is in a two-week break for Easter.

Grassley’s meetings include 19 town meetings, Q&A with students in five high schools, visits to a Lion’s Club and a Kiwanis Club, a Job Corps Center meeting, Q&A with members of the John Deere Supervisor’s Club, and facility tours and Q&A with employees at Go Daddy and Mackay Mitchell Envelope Company.

Grassley said he is holding town meetings that are open to the public and also going to workplaces, service clubs and schools to reach people who may not attend a town meeting.  “Representative government is a two-way street.  It’s strengthened by dialogue between elected officials and the people we represent,” he said.

Grassley has held at least one meeting with Iowans in every one of the state’s 99 counties since 1980, when he was first elected to serve in the U.S. Senate.
