Knoxville —  

Senator Chuck Grassley has planned meetings with Iowans in 16 counties during the Senate’s upcoming February recess week, including 10 town meetings and question-and-answer sessions with students at four high schools, employees at a manufacturing plant, and members of the Des Moines Rotary Club.

Grassley is scheduled to be at Knoxville High School on Wednesday, Feb. 20, from noon-1 p.m.

“I look forward to these meetings to listen to comments and respond to questions,” Grassley said.  “Representative government is a two-way street, and it’s strengthened by dialogue between elected officials and the people we represent.  Going to every county every year for face-to-face meetings is part of my effort to keep in touch with Iowans.”

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.
