Topics Included Preventing a Government Shutdown, Social Security, Virginia Railway Investments, Aid for Ukraine, and Border Security & Immigration Reform

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

During Wednesday’s event, Spanberger and Seventh District residents discussed many topics and priorities — including expanding Virginia passenger rail, reforming America’s broken immigration system, cracking down on cartels, protecting retirement benefits, and more. Additionally, the Congresswoman thanked first responders for keeping Virginians safe during recent winter storms and updated Virginians on her ongoing work to protect Virginia’s economy, address the fentanyl crisis, and prevent a reckless government shutdown.

More than 3,000 Virginians joined Wednesday night’s event. Click here for a full video recording of the event.

“Speaking with Virginians about the issues that matter most to them helps me reflect their priorities through my work in Congress. During last night’s town hall, I had the opportunity to hear from many of our neighbors on the issues that most impact their families, businesses, and communities — including combating fentanyl, preventing a dangerous government shutdown, and protecting Social Security benefits,” said Spanberger. “Thank you to the thousands of Virginians who tuned in and all those who shared their thoughts with me. I look forward to the next opportunity to connect with so many Virginians across the Seventh District and I encourage anyone who was unable to ask a question to please reach out to my office.”

Wednesday’s event was Spanberger’s 54th 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.
