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 cracking down on illicit fentanyl, fixing America’s broken immigration system, protecting retirement benefits, deliver security assistance to America’s allies in Ukraine, ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment, and more. Additionally, the Congresswoman thanked first responders for assisting with urgent search and rescue efforts following the collapse of the Key Bridge in Baltimore and updated Virginians on the more than $12.9 million in federal funding she secured this year for community-requested projects throughout Virginia’s Seventh District.

More than 4,300 Virginians joined Wednesday night’s event. Click here for a full video recording of the event.

“During last night’s town hall, I answered questions directly from our neighbors on a wide range of topics — from ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment to cracking down on illicit fentanyl to delivering security assistance to our allies in Ukraine. I always appreciate the opportunity to hear what is on the minds of Virginians and am thankful to those who tuned in to share their thoughts with me,” said Spanberger. “I look forward to the next opportunity to connect with so many Virginians across the Seventh District. I encourage anyone who was unable to ask a question to please reach out to my office.”

Wednesday’s event was Spanberger’s 56th 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.
