HENRICO CITIZEN

U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger (Virginia-7th District) will host an open public telephone town hall Dec. 16 from 7:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. to discuss issues facing Central Virginia families, businesses, healthcare providers, schools and others. The live event will also be streamed via video on Spanberger’s website and Facebook page.

During the event, Spanberger will be joined by Virginia Secretary of Health and Human Resources Daniel Carey. Both will answer questions directly from Central Virginians about the range of healthcare and economic issues facing the Seventh District. Additionally, Spanberger will deliver an update about the current status of COVID-19 relief measures on Capitol Hill, as well as preview her priorities in the next Congress.

“Wednesday’s telephone town hall will be an opportunity to discuss the shared issues facing our communities as we work together to fight the effects of the pandemic,” said Spanberger. “Additionally, I look forward to receiving feedback and input on steps Congress has taken — or has yet to take — to rebuild our economy, stop the spread of the virus, and provide financial relief to families and businesses. I hope many Central Virginians will join our interactive discussion.”

To join the interactive telephone event, constituents should dial in to 855-920-0555. To watch the conversation live, visit spanberger.house.gov/live or Spanberger’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/RepSpanberger.
