Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley said he will hold constituent meetings in 30 Iowa communities during the last week of March and the first week of April, and one of these meetings will be in Decorah.

The meetings are scheduled when the Senate is scheduled to break for Easter.



The meeting in Decorah on March 25 is from 11 a.m.-noon at Vesterheim Museum's Amdal-Odland Heritage Building in the gathering room, 523 West Water St.

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 MackayMitchell Envelope Company.

"Representative government is a two-way street. It's strengthened by dialogue between elected officials and the people we represent," Grassley said. "I like to hold a combination of town meetings, where everyone is invited to attend and ask questions on any subject, and meetings where I go to people in their workplaces and at community events to reach people who may not go to a town meeting. I also like spending time with high school students as they study current affairs and our system of government."

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.

Other Northeast Iowa communities earmarked for Grassley visits on March 25 include Cresco, Waukon, Elkader and Oelwein.
