Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst on-occasion attempt to bridge the gap between politics and the citizens. This is why they are sending off their staff all over Iowa next week for office hours focused on ‘agricultural-specific matters and federal policy’.
Sen. Grassley says: “My top priority is serving the people of Iowa. Traveling office hours is one way of doing that. My staff in Iowa act as my eyes and ears while I’m in Washington and it’s important that I hear regularly from farmers and those working in the agriculture industry.”
A Floyd Count event will take place on March 11th from 10 to 11 a.m. at the North Iowa Area Community College, Room 108 in Charles City.
Sen. Ernst says about the office hours: “But, when I can’t be there, members of my team help fill the gap. I’m glad to announce that staff from my office, and Senator Grassley’s, are holding these traveling office hours across the state to listen to and hear directly from our farmers and agriculture community members.”
Again, the senators won’t be in attendance, but the staff will be there to answer any concerns locals might have around the politics of Grassley or Ernst.
