More than 5,600 Virginians Joined Spanberger’s Event, Which was Her 41st Public, Open Town Hall Event

HENRICO, V.A. — This week, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger hosted another open, public telephone town hall to discuss issues facing Virginia’s families, seniors, and small businesses.

During the event, Spanberger and Seventh District residents discussed a wide range of issues facing Virginians — including prescription drug costs, broadband internet access, physical infrastructure, cybersecurity, gas prices, Veterans’ issues, and more. Additionally, she updated Virginians about legislation that was recently signed into law that will directly benefit the Commonwealth’s veterans, seniors, and economy — such as the bipartisan Honoring Our PACT Act, the bipartisan CHIPs and Science Act, and the Inflation Reduction Act.

More than 5,600 Virginians joined during Wednesday night’s event. Click here for a full video recording.

“I’m proud of my work on behalf of Virginia’s Seventh District, and I was glad to have yet another opportunity to discuss my record with the people I serve. During our conversation, I heard about many challenges facing Virginians — including high prescription drug costs, inflation, and concerns about physical infrastructure and traffic. My top priority is to not only be responsive to these issues, but to actually get results for our communities and work together to achieve progress,” said Spanberger. “I want to thank the Virginians who took time out of their busy schedules to join us, and I look forward to many more chances to have a dialogue about how we can make Virginia a stronger place to raise a family, start a business, and retire.”

Wednesday’s event was Spanberger’s 41st open, public town hall event. These town halls have focused on the many issues facing Virginia’s families, veterans, healthcare professionals, small businesses, students, and seniors. Click here to watch full recordings of previous events.
