WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger last night hosted an open, public telephone town hall to discuss issues faced by Virginia families, small businesses, and seniors.

During Monday’s event, Spanberger and Seventh District residents discussed many topics — including supporting Virginia’s Veterans, fixing America’s broken immigration system, protecting retirement benefits for Virginia seniors, expanding workforce training opportunities, addressing USPS issues across the Commonwealth, and more. Additionally, the Congresswoman provided an update on this past weekend’s vote to provide long overdue aid to America’s allies in Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan — as well as vital humanitarian aid in Gaza and in the West Bank.

More than 5,500 Virginians joined Monday night’s event. Click here for a full video recording of the event.

“On Capitol Hill, I’m focused on delivering on the issues that are top of mind for the Virginians I represent. Last night, I enjoyed answering questions from many of our neighbors on the issues that matter most to them — from fixing mail service and delivery issues across our Commonwealth to addressing the crisis at our southern border,” said Spanberger. “I always look forward to connecting with so many Virginians across the Seventh District during these town hall events and I thank each and every person who joined us last night. I encourage anyone who was unable to ask a question to please reach out to my office and my team will do our best to assist!”

Monday’s event was Spanberger’s 57th open, public town hall event. These town halls have focused on a range of issues facing Virginia’s families, Veterans, seniors, small businesses, students, and communities. Click here to watch full recordings of previous events.
