WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger yesterday hosted an open, public telephone town hall to discuss issues faced by Virginia families, Veterans, and seniors.
During Wednesday’s event, Spanberger and Seventh District residents discussed many topics and priorities — including preventing gun violence, expanding Virginia rail, reforming our broken immigration system, protecting reproductive rights, supporting our allies in Israel and Ukraine, and more. Additionally, the Congresswoman updated Virginians on her ongoing work to ban lawmakers, their spouses, and their dependent children from buying, selling, and trading individual stocks.
Nearly 3,400 Virginians joined Wednesday night’s event. Click here for a full video recording of the event.
“Thank you to the thousands of Virginians who tuned in to Wednesday’s telephone town hall event. During last night’s conversation, I heard from many Virginians on the issues that matter most to them — ranging from reforming our nation’s broken immigration system to protecting reproductive rights across our Commonwealth. During every town hall, I am able to hear directly from the Virginians I represent — meaning I’m better able address their priorities and concerns through my work on Capitol Hill,” said Spanberger. “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 53rd 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.
