WASHINGTON – Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on Monday met with Jamie and Shelly Knutson of Cambridge and their children, Madison and Cody, during their vacation visit to Washington, D.C.
“I enjoyed visiting with the Knutsons,” Grassley said. “I appreciate the opportunity to meet face-to-face, hear concerns and answer questions from Iowans.”
The family spoke with Grassley about a variety of current events and personal experiences Grassley remembers from his time in office. Grassley recalled events, such as Mother Teresa’s speaking at the Capitol and meeting former president of Egypt Muhammad El-Sadat weeks before his assassination.
Grassley makes it a priority to meet with Iowans visiting Washington, D.C., in addition to events in Iowa, including his annual visits to each of the 99 counties. While in the nation’s capital, Grassley sets aside two hours each day to meet with Iowans. He encourages Iowans to write him or visit one of his offices regarding questions or concerns they have with the federal government.
