Grassley Completes Annual 99 County Meetings For 38th Year-

OSCEOLA -Grassley Press: U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa today held his 99th county meeting for the 38th year as part of his annual 99 county meetings with an hour-long town meeting Q&A at the Clarke County Hospital in Osceola.

In 2018, Grassely held a town hall meeting with employees at DEIMCO in Tama.

With the Osceola meeting, Grassley marks the conclusion of another year in his 38-year practice of holding meetings with Iowans in every one of Iowa's 99 counties at least once annually. Grassley has done so every year since he was first elected to serve in the U.S. Senate in 1980. The hallmark of his meetings are the open-topic question-and-answer sessions where Grassley invites and responds to questions and comments on any subject. Grassley's efforts to go to Iowans where they work, study and live sets a standard for representative government. Grassley also makes himself available for 15 minutes after each meeting to answer questions from local news media.
