Sens. Ernst and Grassley Continue Their 99 County Tours
This is what leadership looks like.
DES MOINES, Iowa -- The pandemic has not stopped Senators Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley from safely meeting with Iowans. Both have continued their 99 county tours this week, listening to Iowans in every corner of the state -- maintaining their commitment to taking their constituents' voices to Washington and demonstrating the level of accessibility that Iowans demand.
Check out some of the highlights:
KMEG: “Ernst met with members of the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce to answer questions from local business leaders.”
The Oskaloosa Herald: “Sen. Chuck Grassley is still looking to complete a 'full Grassley' this year... He's completed the task for 39 consecutive years he said. By the end of this week he'll have visited 49 counties so far this year.”
KAAL: “On her tour of all 99 counties in Iowa, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst visited the Northern Lights Alliance for the Homeless in Mason City”
The Hawk Eye: “Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, made a stop at City Hall in Mediapolis Tuesday on his annual tour of Iowa’s 99 counties; this is Grassley’s 40th year in a row of holding Q-and-A meetings in every Iowa county.”
“Sen. Grassley wrote the book on constituent outreach and how a representative government should work for the people,” said Jeff Kaufmann, Chairman of the Republican Party of Iowa. “He has not slowed down since the first day he took office. Sen. Ernst is following in his footsteps and takes her job representing the people of Iowa seriously. Not even a pandemic will slow the dedication and commitment these two leaders have for their state.”
