Carry-On Trailer Hosts Iowa Sen. Grassley Tracks


town hall meeting.” Grassley went on to explain that the meeting is informal and that “you set the agenda” with your questions. A wide range of topics from immigration policy, the nuclear trade bill with Iran, the needs of special needs children and many other local and national issues were covered.


Grassley said that by visiting businesses, he always learns about government’s effect on that business and its workers and what their major concerns are.


“I don’t think we, in Iowa, brag enough about the good things we do in Iowa,” said Grassley. “Here, I am impressed with the number of trailers Carry-On Trailer puts out per year. I think it was around 24,000, probably their productivity of the work force is very high if they are able to get that many out.”


“By hosting Sen. Grassley, it gave us the opportunity to discuss local issues, and for him to meet with his constituents. It was a successful event, and Sen. Grassley now knows the constituents of this area a little better,” said Russell.

“As chairman of NATM’s Government Affairs Committee, I advocate the importance of meeting with those that shape legislation that impacts the light- and medium-duty trailer industry. This group includes not only safety administrations such as NHTSA, but political representatives as well. By meeting with legislators and their staff on a regular basis to open the lines of communication, the trailer industry can help shape the legislation instead of sitting by helplessly,” said Russell. “It gave Carry-On the opportunity to discuss company issues and national issues as it pertains to the entire industry.”


Sen. Grassley wrapped up his visit at Carry-On Trailer and his Q&A session by saying, “Thank you Carry-On for making it possible for me to learn about your business and take the tour, but most importantly, thank you for giving me a chance to have a Q&A with the workers and management. I really appreciate this opportunity.”
