Due to an unexpected Senate schedule change by Senate Majority Leader Schumer, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has adapted his 99 county meeting schedule accordingly. Grassley will kick off his annual 99 county meeting tour with a town meeting in Fayette County on Monday, January 17. He will then host a town meeting the following week in Chickasaw County on Thursday, January 27.


“You can’t have representative government without dialogue between elected officials and the people we represent,” Grassley said. “I appreciate the opportunity to hold open town meetings, answer questions and take comments. Holding at least one question-and-answer session in every county every year is one way I regularly keep in touch with Iowans.” 


This is Grassley’s 42nd year of holding meetings in every one of Iowa’s 99 counties. Grassley has held at least one meeting in every county, every year since he was first elected to serve in the U.S. Senate. He takes and answers questions on any subject raised. Iowans set the agenda.



Grassley will be available for 15 minutes after each meeting to answer questions from local reporters. These town meetings are open to the public and media. Details for the upcoming meetings follow.
