DES MOINES, Iowa – U.S. Reps. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 02, and Randy Feenstra, R-IA 04, announced they concluded visiting every county in their districts this week, with Miller-Meeks finishing her second tour.
Miller-Meeks announced Wednesday that she visited all 24 of Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District’s counties at least twice since being sworn in on January 3.
“Over the last few months I have had the absolute pleasure of crisscrossing the district I am fortunate enough to represent in the House of Representatives. From Decatur County to Clinton and everywhere in between, it has been amazing to meet with so many proud Iowans,” she said in a released statement. “I have heard from business owners and workers about our local economy, listened to farmers discuss this year’s crop season, and spoken with teachers about how they are molding the minds of our future leaders. My favorite part by far has been the numerous times I was able to help administer COVID-19 vaccines at our great health centers, pharmacies, and hospitals to do as much as I can to get Iowa back to normal. I will continue to travel across the Second District and listen to our communities about how I can best represent them as their Congresswoman.”
Feenstra announced on Tuesday that he completed the first phase of his county tour in 2021 having visited all 39 counties in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District. He pledged to visit every county at least twice every year.
“From meeting with young farmers in Lyon County to holding a roundtable with business leaders in Chickasaw County — and everywhere in between — I have enjoyed meeting with farmers, manufacturers, small business owners, students, and Iowans from all walks of life,” Feenstra said in a released statement “As we return to normal and continue our recovery from the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been particularly important to hear the struggles Iowans are facing — whether it’s workforce shortages or the rising cost of goods and services. I will continue listening to Iowans and taking their concerns and ideas to Washington. I am here to be an effective voice for the 4th District.”
Feenstra said he will continue with the second half of his 39 county tour throughout the next half of the year.
