7th District congresswoman hosts coffee klatch in Culpeper


The second-floor event space at Raven’s Nest Coffee House in downtown Culpeper was a-buzz Thursday afternoon when some 30 people joined Abigail Spanberger, D-7th, for the U.S. representative’s second “Coffee with Your Congressperson” event held in Central Virginia.

Her constituents posed questions on topics ranging from national security to health care and the federal government’s recent shutdown.

“I was happy to hear directly from constituents over a cup of coffee and to discuss the key issues on their minds this week,” Spanberger said in a statement afterward. “As we continue these … community conversations, I hope to see many old and new friends as we work together to build stronger opportunities across Central Virginia.”

In February, Spanberger hosted her first such event in Amelia County. Earlier this week, she hosted a town hall in Nottoway County, which followed similar meetings in Goochland and Spotsylvania counties.

Her office recently announced it will hold seven additional town hall meetings in the remaining seven counties in Virginia’s 7th District, including Culpeper in July and Orange in the fall.
